Community Tasting Note

  • Indran Rajendra Likes this wine: 95 points

    February 2, 2015 - This 19 year old wine was tasted blind-the wine chosen from the cellar by my wife. The garnet color and presence of sediment hinted to its age. The body was semi-opaque rather than opaque making the wine less likely to be from an exceptional vintage such as 2000 or 1990. The bouquet was aged with cedar, mushrooms and earth. However, there were primary aromas of blackcurrant cherries and blueberries. Cigarbox roses and mint were there too. The balance was slightly off with the prominent acid structure showing through the facade of the wine. The body was medium with a length of 25 seconds. The wine has a feminine nature and classically made. Accessed with Coravin the second time-the last a few weeks ago. Drunk from 17 degrees c. In the decanter for 40 minutes. Riedel Bordeaux. The wine was bought when a few years old and cellared at 14 degrees C for about 15 years.
