East Bay Burgundy Dinner April 2015 - Nuits St Georges (Camino): Served single blind (although by this stage of the evening I'd certainly forgotten what was coming). Little bit blowsy and imprecise perhaps? But only a little - and it sat in very refined company. Lovely wine - one of the most voluptuous of the evening perhaps?
Medium ruby/garnet, medium pale garnet rim. Nose shows black cherry, liquorice, touch of farmyard and smoke. Nice combination of sweetness and funk. Medium bodied on the palate, soft and quite evolved, dark fruit, liquorice, some red fruit coming through towards the finish, which is quite persistent if not overly expansive. Very good but not out of the top draw and probably at its best now and over the next 3-5 years.
