Community Tasting Note

  • liber Likes this wine: 88 points

    April 4, 2016 - 10th of 18, pnp, perfect cork and level - similar to last April's note but the dry tannins were more obtrusive and pleasure factor diminished hence the downgrade. I preferred the purity of the 98 on the night. VG+ (16.5).

    4/7/16, 6:55 AM - thanks Colin. I'm sure it would have helped, but I'm still left wondering about the obtrusiveness and nature of the tannins. I had this as a long haul wine, but I'm not sure now that it has the balance and fruit. Still no worries about the next 5 years.
