Sunday, May 21, 2006 - 14.7% alc...sort of being conservative by KB standards :^)
What a friggin delish wine - intitial note - sans food, sans proper note taking....
Proper note takin':
The nose IMMEDIATELY jumps from the glass - interesting. Some really ripe notes, I am partial to possibly verging on roasted? BUT at the same time there is this balancing aspect of green in a good way wholesomeness, alongside some kickass ripe blackberries and those candy cherry things I used to get in HS at lunch, sour candy chewy cherries....touch of new wood, but understand this is the LAST thing I picked up, besided the heat that never shows on the palate...tremendous texuture, never yielding to anything other than viscous, glorious PN in nature. It is all PN, but carried to a higher level, a more concentrated level. FUN. That is how I would describe it, FUN. Don't look for too much, not too much complexity - like the girl next to me in HS buying those sour candy chews, altogether too enthusiastic to want to PLEASE!!! Please-away KB. This is for drinking now, while we allow Kanzler to rest thank you very much. **** out of *****.
