Community Tasting Notes 7

September 15, 2016 - Barolo tasting (at my home): dark opaque red-brown
fine elegant cherry wood and truffles nose with glue hints
medium bodied, soft firm tannins, rich cherries wood flavours, truffles, light tobacco, cedar, earthy, short finish, medium aftertaste.
May 24, 2015 - Memorial Day Weekend at Lake Lanier (Gainesville, GA): Really nice wine drinking near peak (though others are very youthful), this had lots of dried red cherry, roses, and cedar; the palate showed good texture but drying tannin that made it not the best pairing on a warm Summer day.
May 2, 2015 - Old World Blind Tasting >$25 (Bin 75): Dark core with larger crimson rim; creamy oak, vanilla, dill, red cherry strawberry, acetaldehyde, Pledge, new oak reminiscent of Rioja, good density and nobility that says it is a good producer and/or bottling; cedary tannin on the palate, sour cherry, long, orange oil, mandarin oranges on the finish, wood tannin; nose was a ringer for Rioja but the palate reminded me of Barolo so I called '05 Azelia Barolo; this bottle showed extremely young and needs 5+ years to soak up the oak whereas others have seemed really ripe and showed much less oak, I prefer this one but patience is necessary.
July 26, 2014 - Saturday Night Double Blind, $40+ (Bin 75): Dark core with crimson orange rim; hints at soy, cedar, roses, sweet and dried cherry, orange zest, sandalwood, potpourri, sexy; grainy tannin, brown sugar, tannic and dry finish; this bottle was advanced with hard tannin.

December 15, 2013 - Pretty, clear, ruby. Brightly acidic with cherry, cranberry, rose, clove tea, and orange peel. Food friendly with the tart acidity refreshing the palate. Limited depth, medium finish.
