Inspire Moore Change Reserve 2010 (NY)

I've said it before, I'll say it again. Tim Moore is one of the coolest guys in the east coast wine business. And I always love seeing him. While I was at Eastern Wineries Exposition 2015, in Syracuse, at the blogger station, I ran into him. He'd brought a fantastic wine to the blogger station - Inspire Moore Change Reserve 2010!

You know how a wine is good. When 20 people are standing around asking if there's any more of that wine - and they point to the empty bottle of Change Blaufrankish Reserve 2010. That's a good review.

The 2010 was 100% Bluafrankish fermented in New York oak Puncheons and then aged for 6 months in oak. Big fruit up front with raspberries, strawberries and plum. Nice acidity keeps the fruit fresh and tangy and on the palate a full minute after the sip has passed. Soft tannins. A lovely Rhone-ish styled red. A really gorgeous wine.

When 20 wine people keep coming at you asking for more....well, you know you have a winner. And Moore is a winner.
