Community Tasting Notes 4

  • JulianSkeels Does not like this wine: (84 points)

    December 23, 2013 - Dry, tannic, with spices but... Boring and four-square. Little improvement with a few hours of air. Pass.

  • Keith Clark Likes this wine: (86 points)

    October 27, 2013 - Nice ruby colour, medium (-light) bodied. Restrained nose - gentle bramble fruits with a little dusty spiciness and then some black pepper. Perhaps a little woodiness. Very dry, tannic flavours at first: cassis thins initially but then comes back after an hour or so. Better than the last bottle, which was a rogue bottle, but on this basis only a year or so left.

    September 19, 2013 - Popped and drunk.
    Smell very similar to Calon. High alcohol nose, high acid, boysenberry nose. High acid taste. Taste is lacking a bit of depth. The nose is very good compared to the flavors. Not bad, but not great.

    November 22, 2011 - Davy's Wine Tasting (London): A reasonably pleasant St Estephe that should be drunk quite young.

    Less tannic with nice red fruit notes
