Community Tasting Note

  • wilypod Likes this wine: 86 points

    September 24, 2012 - My second bottle, last tasted 7 months ago. The nose is even prettier and has a dark cherry pepper intensity, not the most familiar guise of Grenache. The palate is so-so and lacks tannin and glycerin to fill the mouth but on day 2 was livelier. Grenache evolves unpredictably and I think the palate could lose its slight grape pip/black olive bitterness and be in better alignment with its fetching aromatics.

    9/25/12, 5:57 AM - The primary grape in this wine is actually Cariñena [aka Samsó or Carignan], not Garnacha [Grenache], so not sure why it is listed as a Grenache blend. But this probably does explains your tasting experience.
