Community Tasting Note

  • Benj wrote: 87 points

    June 23, 2015 - Nose: drumstick sweets, pear, appletizer, slightly peppery/sherbety. Rich and round. Palate: good high acidity on mid-palate, but a little flat on the attack. Finish is short-medium and a little oily; after such a strong showing on the nose this is quite disappointing. £35
