Community Tasting Note

    February 18, 2012 - Nose: Dusty gravel, plums, black currants, soy, pencil lead, tobacco leaf, eucalytpus. Palate: Bold, ripe, and fleshy currants dominate the attack, but are also framed by pencil lead and rich soy sauce. Excellent transition to the mid-palate and through to the finish. Some may find the tannins a little too drying but their texture and fleshiness augur well for this wine's future potential.

    While virtually all the attention has moved on to the 2009 and 2010 vintage, I would advise against overlooking 2008. All the futures I have have received and tasted thus far have shown enough material for this vintage to warrant further exploration and purchasing. This D'Armailhac is a delicious wine and represents its appellation very well.
