Pnp'ed which I questioned a bit, but actually this was ready for business almost immediately. Very accessible, good balance to the wine. Didn't take very detailed notes, but I did like heavier dark red fruit.
Coravin: No score. This is on the borderline of being flawed though just not obvious. This could well be in a dumb phase. The nose was excellent and the fruit is there, but there was no acidity and the mouthfeel was extremely flat. As we got to our last sip it was starting to come alive, though not sure if would have ever gotten there. Had I had more time I would have popped the cork and let it breathe for a while, but will have to try that another night.
Nose of dark chocolate, mocha, dark blood. Nice medium weight in the mouth. A bit fruit forward, with bright fruits (like tart cherry) , surrounded with dark chocolate, mocha, with some root beer on the side.
Not sure what to make of this. A bit too young and fruit forward for me at the moment. But perhaps later in the evening…….
A bit more acidity and iodine on the nose. Still dark chocolate and mocha, raw meat. But starting to give way to more acidic nose. The palate is more sweet, coffee and chocolate, cola, blackberries.
Very delicious. A bit more fruit forward than I would like, but not to a distracting level. Definitely the favorite of the night (with Junsen and Bryan). Unfortunately shared with friends, so no detailed tasting notes!
