Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 89 points

    March 29, 2012 - Notes from day 2 after a recork. Nose: Currants, toasty oak, tobacco leaf, menthol. Palate: Dark currants, licorice, dusty tannins on the attack. Slightly drying tannins are joined by big acidity on the mid-palate. Currants and toasty oak, roasted coffee notes linger on the finish.

    First off, the fruit material is sufficiently sweet and rich and I find myself nodding "mhmmm" as I drink this. However, at other times the wine is jagged and screams at you for waking it from its slumber. In my mind, a great wine to buy at $30 and lay down for 5-7 years for a great QPR cellar play. Were it better integrated now, it would have gained an extra point or two in my book.
