Community Tasting Note

    June 28, 2008 - Nose: Bitter chocolate, sour cherry/raspberry. There is a lushness that I can't attribute to a discrete flavor. It's sort of similar to that the lush mouth-feel you get when eating a whole spoonful of warmed hot fudge topping.

    Palate: Cocoa powder/bitter chocolate, dried sour cherries, cinnamon & clove, black pepper. Tannins are present - rather like the skin on a slightly underripe red plum. Not a tannic - eating chalk experience. Tannins only dry out the middle of the tongue. Also don't taste a whole lot of alcohol. I only get the alcohol when I do a bad, slorpy inhale across a mouthful - which normally results in choking cough and spitting out the whole lot. Not very attractive.
