Community Tasting Note

    March 29, 2017 - Final glasses after several corvine samples over 2 months. Absolutely no sign of any additional development or ageing. Very similar note to previous one:
    Deep garnet colour.
    Clean nose, pronounced flavours of dark fruit (cassis, damson), floral (violet), other (pencil lead), oak (smoke, clove), tertiary (cedar, cigar box), dried fruit (fig, prune).
    Dry palate, medium (+) acidity, medium alcohol, medium body, medium (+) tannins, fine, a little dry, medium (+) flavours of cassis, damson, violet, pencil lead, smoke, cedar, prune. Long finish.
    Outstanding, classic St Julien, drinking very nicely now, but with a long life ahead - it has the concentration of fruit, the acidity and tannins to continue to develop further tertiary complexity.
