Double Blind Pinot Tasting at T&T's (Tina's House): Impressions: appeared visually similar to grape juice. Nose was grapey and alcohol was noticeable. Very tight, some herbs, very tannic, red fruits, needs time. Was a wild card at a double blind Pinot tasting and it was clearly out of place. Alcohol noticeable at 15% abv. 80
Not much on the nose. Mainly some light barnyard and dark cherry. Later a little licorice and cedar. Big wine - high chewy tannins, full body, high (15%) alcohol, medium+ acidity. Medium finish. The alcohol stands out. Not much different on day 2 or 3. It's a decent wine, but nothing special.
Time treated this syrah well. It was much more open than the last time with rich, plush fruit. The tannins are still a bit grainy but keep it from being flabby. Dark fruits but tempered by a note of burnt cranberry on the finish. Tea notes, bitter sweet chocolate and some cedar.
