Community Tasting Note

  • ProfAvi Likes this wine: 92 points

    September 1, 2018 - On opening: Garnet core (with a hint of purple still) with a pinkish rim. Unlike others' bottles no VA on opening unless that is the slightly medicinal note on the nose; plenty of dark fruit. On the palate it was stewed red fruits with firms tannins and some acidity making it feel slightly bitter on the aftertaste and with some secondary leathery notes developing.

    After a couple of hours in bottle (not decanted): Garnet core, warm spice on the nose and stewed red fruit almost pruney on the palate.

    First bottle from a 6 bottle case from TWS. I like my CNDPs old so will keep one or two back and see how they are in 2026. The rest I'll drink over the next couple of years with a roast or stew.
