Community Tasting Note

    December 11, 2018 - Decanted briefly at Manhatta at partner dinner last nite. I've had this wine before and found it disappointing. Alas, the same result this time around. I just don't understand the ratings I'm seeing for this wine here on CT.
    A lovely, generous nose, with aromas of leather, black fruits, cassis and pencil shavings. On the palate, medium bodied and tending toward a soft elegance. There's some fruit, the tannins are mostly resolved but I find the wine quite short and just nothing special, lacking in charm or power. I wish the wine tasted as good as the wine smells from the decanter.
