Monthly tasting club "The Tasting Club" 2014-03; Lebanon. (@ RG): Dusty cherries in the bouquet. Juicy cherries on the palate. A bit lactic. Meaty as well. Vanilla from the oak. Ok acidity and round, a bit sticky tannin. No extreme complexity or finesse, but certainly a very ok wine with a future of several years. Will probably show more complexity when the oak is more integrated and the primary cherry fruits have faded a bit.
