Community Tasting Notes 5

    February 7, 2014 - Ripe nose of dark berries and spice, with a quintessential funk get at bay. On the palate it also shows a little riper than your average Bordeaux, both in the fruit profile and in the alchohol (14.5). This is not a master of finesse or destined for years in your cellar, but for quick pleasure, immediate drinking, it fits the bill without destroying the budget.

    January 19, 2014 - Creamy bouquet with ripe red and dark forest fruits, some sweetness, smoke, barnyard and salty licorice. On the palate good concentrated ripe dark fruits, pleasant acidity and soft tannin. Already a pleasure and certainly for the next 4+ years. Nice wine.

    December 16, 2013 - Fully ready to drink, the wine is filled with round textures, licorice, espresso bean, plum and cherries. This is not for aging. It's for drinking.

    March 31, 2013 - Really enjoyable and very enjoyable young Bordeaux. You don't need to sit on this - it is quite drinkable now, even without a lot of air. Nice dark berries with a medium finish. I'd buy again.

    November 4, 2012 - 2009 Bordeaux (for Public TV) (World Series of Wine): This was a fine enough wine. I have had some 09 Bordeaux at half the price that I found better, but it is solid. Lots of cherries and dark cherries. Some spice. Ready to drink now and over the next few years.
