Community Tasting Notes 35

December 11, 2016 - A stunning pomerol with 100% merlot. Another one of RP's tips at the time, as per previous review, it is one of the best value wines around. A heady bouquet of cherry, liqourice and cedar explodes in the mouth where it is perfectly balanced by steely tannins which have softened sufficiently to provide a beautiful smoothness on the palate. Completed with a 30+ second finish, this is a great experience. Although in its its drinking window, at this stage it does need to be decantered for a good few hours and be allowed to breath in the glass to fully appreciate it. Also it undoubtedly will continue to get even better.

May 3, 2016 - Rich, fully developed cassis on the nose upon open. A tad thin on the palate, but it filled in with graphite, mature dark red fruit, and silky tannins and acid still intact. Although my bottle appeared to be in pristine condition, it also suggested this should be consumed in the short term.

October 9, 2015 - Extremely rich in its red fruit. Decanted 1 hour before first sniff. Powerful nose if deep red spicy fruit, almost oriental black tea, someone mentioned menthol in this thread which absolutely spot on. Theres hints of dark somewhat smokey liquirice, toasted oak, charcoal. In the mouth its rich, and dense in a modern napa fruit way. It dances of into the sunset with structure of bordeaux tannins with perfectly balanced rich fruit.

March 26, 2015 - Jeff Leve review 2/13 spot on with oak a bit milder, but still full bodied, quite dark with only modest lightening and years to go. Also got some initial menthol and rich black cherry....merlot softness a real treat here..pretty wine if not for the classicist1 person found this helpful Comment
