Community Tasting Notes 15

  • Purslane Likes this wine: (93 points)

    January 10, 2017 - A supremely good wine for pairing with almost every food, with the acidity to brighten bland foods, the tannin to clean out meats and fatty foods like sausage and cheeses, and delicious fruit to make a fruitless food more tasty and complex. Opaque with an inch pour, fragrant black cherry and blackberry, dense and smooth texture, self cleansing acidity and tannin, and years of superb drinking left.

    Nose: dark ripe cherry, nutmeg, powdered cocoa
    Palette: cherry, tobacco, cigar box
    Mouthfeel: soft smooth start, drys out on the finish
