Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 89 points

    December 20, 2012 - Nose: Bright currants, pepper, tobacco leaf, licorice, bramble. Palate: Pencil lead, sweet currants on the attack. Drying tannins, more sweet fruit on the mid-palate. Licorice-laced currants on the finish.

    So, this wine is a pretty good QPR. Ripe, sweet fruit, good structure, lots of tannins now that will integrate with a few years. Just enough acidity too. This would be the type of bottle I serve cheaply to guests that aren't attuned to Bordeaux and want to know what the story is.
