Community Tasting Notes (14) Avg Score: 92.5 points

  • During a tasting event. Medium ruby with purple core. Discrete nose of dark fruit with cedar wood. On the palate this finely grained, soft and ripe on the palate. Nothing heavy, good tannins. This could easily pass for a 2009 Grand Cru Bordeaux. Very serious effort. 93+

  • Opened 3 hours before drinking from bottle. Nose was still very primary with notes of blackcurrant and dark cherries. Palate was very intense with dark berries and cherries similar to the nose along with plenty of very fine tannins to back it up. Slightly green/herbs on the mid palate. Finish was quite long. Only primary flavours present. Drunk much too young. Should lay down for at least 5-6 years.

  • Dark brink red, medium to full bodied, ripe fruit with firm tannin, follow by long sweet complex finish.

  • I think this is the first vintage without the Cab / Merlot on the bottle. Hadn't had it in a while and thought I might check in. Rather delicious stuff. Violets, earth, graphite, cherry fruit character. Still very primary, still got tannin and acidity. No reason to rush this one. Maybe try again in three years or so. Tasty all the same. Label says 14% alcohol, I have to believe it is lower than that. I was lucky enough to have Montebello and Margaux the night before this one and I would say that this wine is on par with those. A real treat.

  • Finally getting into some of these Cullen wines I have. Pronounced aromatics. Concentrated dark cherry aromas. Hints ever so slightly at the eucalyptus/herb oils. Boysenberries, black berry. Approachable yet structured for a long life. Such fine tannins! Great flavor intensity on the palate. Spectrum of fruit flavors, concentrated, not jammy. Not really showing any overt oak notes. Can't wait to start enjoying the rest!
