Community Tasting Note

  • ProfAvi Likes this wine: 94 points

    December 13, 2018 - Popped and poured.
    Ruby garnet core fading to a thickish pink rim.
    Good legs.
    Spicy wood and leather on the nose, same on palate but sweetness offset with a zip of acidity leaving a clean finish of considerable length. I noted a hint of violet at some point and sour stewed cherries on the finish.
    Lovely, so far.
    After a couple of hours, my first thought is that this wine has some life left in it but is lovely now. The spice woody notes on the nose are less appealing now, more harsh for some reason. The acidity in the wine paired well with lamb. Tannins remain soft and lush, and the lasting taste on the palate seems to go on and on,
    This is a cracking wine bought as part of a vertical 6 bottle-case from TWS, 2 x 2001, 2005, 2006.
    I'll keep the other bottle for a couple of years.
