Community Tasting Note

  • KeithAkers wrote: 78 points

    February 2, 2017 - 2007 CdP retro (with sushi food pairing) (Streeterville, Chicago): Nose: The nose shows a lot of extraction and alcohol with licorice, black cherries, black raspberries, and black spices.

    Taste: Medium/full bodied with medium tannins and medium- acidity. The tannins are a bit stiff with the feel showing a lot of alcohol and licorice, black cherries, liqueur tones, and prunes.

    Overall: This is overblown and overextracted. The alcohol is out of balance which ends up causing the nose and palate to be out of balance.
