New wine store

There’s a new wine store in Nicholasville. Frankly, it seems entirely too nice and upclass to be downtown Nicholasville. I wish them much success. I went in there yesterday, and was very very impressed, both with the store itself, as well as the staff, who are very knowledgeable. They were doing a Yalumba wine taststing (Oxford Landing, I believe it was) in honor of Australia’s Founders Day. The chard was great – fruity, bright, and easy on the oak. The Shiraz was even better, although it could stand to stay in the cellar for another year or two. Huge nose. Berries and plums and leather. Lots of tannins and earthy flavors. Yummy.
