Community Tasting Note

  • t_moderne wrote: 90 points

    May 23, 2016 - Pop and pour and served with food (roast chicken, risotto and peas, and broccoli, in case you were wondering). Used a Vacu Vin to reseal and refrigerate. Then tasted again on the following two days.
    There has been some discussion about green bean notes in this wine. I don't find it.
    Nose of fresh red berries, some spice and a hint of vanilla. Taste is crisp and crunchy, like biting into a fresh cranberry. Some tart red berries, and an herbal note, but to me, neither green beans nor bell pepper. Takes on a little weight over time, and starts showing some more vanilla notes days after being opened. Good acidity and fresh berries. Enjoyable.
