Pinot purple in color. Aromas of spicy red berry jam and plum spread over toast. Nice use of oak. Medium body with a silky texture gliding southward in a soft wind. A sense of richness protrudes with finesse not becoming hearty but stylish. Jennifer Lopez in a sexy leather biker jacket. Oh, the finish lasts and lasts. Seriously, over a minute. Good acid to boot.
I popped and poured this just now. It needed no time at all. Unusual but a nice surprise as I anticipated waiting an hour. This Jensen is more rich than 09 and 10.
This clocks in at 14.9%abv which is to high for my liking. The booze comes through on the finish and lingers around like an annoying relative.
Overall I think it's a good wine with high complex value for those who enjoy this type of richness. I personally view high abv like this as a flaw. Sorry, I'm not into this trendy physiological maturity BS.
Rich and saturated with aromas that choke. Big ripe plumb preserve with cherry and a touch of smoked oak. All this carries over to the taste buds leaving no room for anything else. Just a fat, almost sweet malt body with high 14.9% abv.
Rich, saturated, overabundant, gluttonous, ... Just fat and jammy. Over the top PN @ 15.8% abv. Smells of chocolate, smashed over ripened black cherry pulp and plum blubber. There's a hint of stricken flint and wet stones. Full body with a bit of acidity underneath all this weight. It's too much. I do detect a touch of blueberry pie on this. Alcohol shows on the finish. Done! Stop the madness already with this high abv shit. Who are you trying to kid?
