Community Tasting Notes 8

    April 12, 2017 - Mid ruby. Mellow and smooth, there's warm worn leather, a little spice and some soft red fruit. Fully resolved and mature, this has good fresh acidity, and enough residual fruit and character for a traditional palate, but avoid it if you prefer fruit to tertiary flavours. An excellent accompaniment to simple lamb. ***1/2

    January 7, 2016 - Lithe and supple, silky and red fruited with leather, sweet tobacco, spice box, wet rocks, tannins in perfect harmony. Seamless with great persistence.

    November 4, 2015 - 2015 Villa d’Este Wine Symposium - Kelly and Kevin's excellent adventure; 11/3/2015-11/9/2015 (Villa D’este, Lake Como): Damp dirty cellar smell that remains. Red fruits, cedar and leather. Medium concentration and fully integrated tannins. It is not corked but definitely some sort of taints.

    March 8, 2014 - Cheval Blanc tasting (30 different vintages) at the Rheingau Gourmet Festival 2014: rubin red color; coffee and smoke; light/medium body; narrow texture.

    Vintages 4th flight: 1979-1980-1981-1982-1984

    May 20, 2013 - Served from magnum this is quite smoky on the nose to begin with. Has some perfumed fruits, sweet tobacco and cedar notes as it breathes. It is plump and full without a hair out of place. Tannins are relatively soft and it is a classy wine. It doesn’t have the most depth or length but is beautifully proportioned and a pleasure to drink.
