Community Tasting Note

  • Christoffer78 Likes this wine: (94 points)

    May 9, 2014 - This is the type of wine which contains everything and then a little more. Still it is meticulously balanced and expresses a lovely integration. The nose is full of typical dark mature fruit, cacao, subtle white pepper, blueberry, a whiff of kirsch and lovely orange blossom. The palate adds nothing more and nothing less than expected. Acidity, oak, fruit and tannins speak in perfect harmony. There is enough structure to allow for a decade or more of cellaring and if served today be sure to add acidity, fat and loads of texture to the food. A true gem which needs some serious time to truly show its best side! (score is 94+)
