Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 90 points

    December 16, 2012 - Nose: Very focused and intense nose of ripe, cedary currants, pencil lead, fig sauce, hint of soy. Palate: Pencil lead, crushed gravel, currants on the attack. Strong, drying tannins along with ample acidity form the mid-palate. Tart currants and a hint of licorice linger on the finish.

    Focused and taut, showing fairly accurate Pauillac character. Not overly ripe or lush as one might expect a 2009 to be. I would liken this to a 2005 more than a 2009 when I think about other 2009's I've had. This is to say that it is rich, not overly ripe, and quite structured. One worth keeping an eye on.
