Community Tasting Note

  • RAMwines Likes this wine: 88 points

    November 24, 2012 - Initial nose of sweet strawberries and some spices. With a little earthiness detected. To the taste this Burgundy was very drinkable with more berries coming through and a nice lingering finish. A little lighter that I would have liked, but a nice experience.

    On the second evening the aroma seemed more enhanced with the sweetness moving more toward the earthiness rather than the fruit. On the palette the wine seemed pretty much unchanged from the previous evening. Finished this Burg with a meatball and parmesan sub from a local pizza shop. It worked well. For the price and the occasion, or lack of one, this Burgundy was very acceptable. May consider a couple of bottles for the cellar
    to compare in a year of 2.
