Community Tasting Note

  • ikkaariainen wrote: 91 points

    November 3, 2018 - A really good QPR wine and already drinking well but no need to rush on this - this has at least another decade left under appropriate cellaring conditions and I do anticipate some further improvement (with a concomitant improvement in the score) with further time, especially with improved balance and integration. Clear black color with no hint of aging / bricking. Intense nose of brambles, dark fruit, spices (lavendar, rose) and a hint of smoke. Good mouth feel, long aftertaste, good backbone and acid and tannins still very much present - as noted above all the flavor elements here but with time will be a smoother more integrated wine as the tannins soften. Palate earthy with dark fruit (plum, black cherry), stone and on the mid-late palate more leather, tobacco abd smoke. Highly recommend - this wine definitely still has upside with further cellaring. Stylistically not purely an old world wine.
