Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 91 points

    October 4, 2012 - Notes are from day 2 after a re-cork. Nose: Currants, white pepper, hints of licorice, soy sauce, tobacco leaf, and a hint of cedar. Palate: Slightly tart currants on the attack. Not as sweet as the day before. Good acidity and drying tannins show up on the mid-palate, then give way to currants on the finish.

    Definitely a lot less complex on day 2 than day 1 where I was getting sweeter currants, cocoa powder, and a rounder feel. I was actually expecting this to improve in complexity with a day in the bottle but it definitely declined. Still, the material is there for a very good bottle, though I would drink it all in one night.
