Community Tasting Note

  • Loren Sonkin wrote: 93 points

    September 22, 2015 - Birthday/Aglianico, 58 Port, ++ (My home): I thought this would have shown better. I suspect it just needs more time, but who knows. In any event, it was great, even if it did not distinguish itself from the pack. purple in color. The nose has black cherries, leather and a bit of spice. On the palate, this has tart cherries (in a good way). Great texture. Seems tannic and tight. Long finish. Kept improving all night and there is a little bit left in the bottle that will be interesting to try on day 2.

    Oh, and happy birthday! ;-)
