Community Tasting Notes 56

May 9, 2016 - Same profile as always but lacking the intensity and electric energy of previous bottles and insufficient fruit to cover the considerable tannin that remains.

November 20, 2015 - Black licorice, pine, cinnamon, EtOH, ozone, spicy Grenache nose. Powerful palate vibrating with energy, black raspberry, sappy, intense. Love this, and tasting somewhat mature to me.

September 10, 2015 - Tasted double blind. Licorice, black raspberry, very fine oak, zippy and ionic energy. Love this, obviously a top tier Priorat.

September 1, 2015 - Tasted triple blind. Mellow nose of licorice, cherry, and some river rock. Succulent body, deep, luscious red fruit. Undertones of black pepper and mocha. Layered. Mid palate grip. Lively and energetic. Metallic/bloody notes on the end. Lengthy finish. Perfect hint of barnyard. Aspects of this remind me of Clos Mogador. Someone said, "This is a thing." Unanimous favorite of the night. Drinking well now, and will continue to do so.

April 28, 2015 - Amazing wine -- perfect for my palate. Complex blend of red fruits and umami that is immensely satisfying.

(TIRANT Rotllan Torra) Late
A few deals arrived late tonight that are quite interesting - all are worth a look but they are not for the shy. These are full-impact wines but they have eccentricities and a unique character that separates them from the norm.
All are directly from the source with perfect provenance:
1999 Tenuta di Trenoro (Toscana) IGT(AG90)
2003 Rotllan Torra Tirant (Priorat) 1.5lt
Quite rare in this format - one of the more regal wines coming out of Priorat...
2005 L & A Lignier Morey-St-Denis "Les Chaffots" 375ml (BH89-92)
