Community Tasting Notes 96

    January 22, 2017 - Just as Vinous said "Explosively perfumed bouquet" it still is all of that. The palate is still big and dark red fruit driven with that Plum and slight vanilla note. Tannins are there, but after 11 years, they have softened. Spice notes still there but softer than upon release. One more bottle and I think I'll try to wait at least 2 to 3 years before consuming.

    December 20, 2016 - Powerful, yet refined. Delicious, yet not overly complex. All-in-all, a delicious bottle. Poured a dark purple with just a bit of sediment. Obviously the expected black and blue fruits with some vanilla and clove. Not a lot of secondary flavors. And I didn't pick up much of the raisin or prune as noted by some others. Silky smooth with no detectable tannin, but a little bit of acidity still poking through. The high alcohol wasn't a distraction at all. A very nice product of 50+ and 100+ year old vineyards.

    December 4, 2016 - Fine wine. But even after 11 years aging never noticed great development of secondary flavors. Balanced but straight forward.

    November 26, 2016 - I opened for company and didn't get a chance to make a note. I will simply add that this has aged quite well and has a lot to offer still and has shed its big fruit-forwardness. I last tasted in 2008 and gave it a 93 at that time.

    November 22, 2016 - Very nice wine, beautiful nose, but fruit is on the jammy side. May just not be my style of syrah. Holding up well, though.
