Community Tasting Note

    March 25, 2019 - One of the better second wines from the right bank, this is a strong vintage of Virginie. The fruit is ripe, red, and bright, and there are some nice herbs, dark chocolate, and tobacco to complement. Medium bodied on the palate, and quite lush and silky. 14%ABV is handled very well and stick out a bit. Fresh finish with good structured acidity. This is probably drinking at or near its peak, but I think it should drink well for the next 5-10 years, depending on your preferred maturity level.
