Community Tasting Note

    October 12, 2018 - Opened and poured.
    Pale red core fading to watery pink rim - good legs.
    Wonderful aromas of red currants and spice.
    Strawberries and cream on the palate, nice acidity producing a clean finish. Good length but nothing amazing.
    After an hour nose has a creamy red fruit note, and the palate a cherry-isn spice.
    I don't often drink US PN as they don't travel well in terms of their price. This wine lacks the concentration of flavour that I normally associate with PNs that I drink from France, but is nevertheless a nice drop. I have another bottle that I will keep for a couple of years to see if any mature PN notes develop.
