Community Tasting Note

  • Gobi wrote: 96 points

    August 7, 2013 - The back label states this should be “vigorously decanted” so I decided to open this 48+ hours before for some slow oxygenation. On the eye this is a clear wine with a dark orange to brown color. The nose has some oxidative notes similar to sherry, roasted nuts, orange marmalade, candied ginger, white flowers, honey, hints of petrol, and crushed stones. Very complex flavors on the palate with some oxidized green apples, pulverized walnuts, dried apricots, orange marmalade, lychees on entry, leading to a refreshing acidic midpalate filled with citrus peel, black tea, baking spices, candied ginger, brown sugar that continues seamlessly on to the long lasting mineral finish. A rich oily textured wine with a mid bodied structure, it possesses very particular aromas and flavors. I've never had something so complex and profound as this, this wine entertains your thoughts and poses an intellectual challenge to your senses.
