Community Tasting Notes (2) Avg Score: 84 points

  • Nicholas Potel 2007 Horizontal (Kirk's Place): From 375

    Initial aromas:
    (riedel bdx)
    huitlacoche, some blueberry, higher tone, tone of.... some chemical.... airport.... it's taking over... menthol/vegetal
    (doug's pinot bowl)
    Still that menthol note, but not as much

    Tastes: First round:
    Nicely textured, a little tartness peaking through on the midpalate, somewhat more green and unripe than the Chambolle. murky grey-green. Not doing much. unripe low+ tannins and tartness on the finish - short. meh

    Tastes: Second Round:
    quite green. Kirk mentioned that it's more tannic than he realized - I agree. Med tannins. 83

  • From a 375ml: #3 on the palate and #4 on the nose in a group of four.

    Color: Dark Ruby

    Smell: Darker, more funky, plum, blackberry, blueberry and a slight mentol note. Later a bright vibrant cherry that reminds me of "Snow Geisha" tea and rhubarb about 30 minutes later...

    Taste: Cherry, plum, blackberry, acai berry

    Overall: Significant tannin and brisk acidity shows promise with enough fruit to lead me to think this could improve quite a bit with time in the bottle.
