Community Tasting Note

    February 21, 2020 - What a delicious punch of seductive elegance! Red and dark fruits like cherries, plums and blackberries. Leather, vanilla, toast, jasmine tea and floral tones in layers. The nose just gets better and better throughout the evening. Great concentration and superb mouthfeel, lots of beautiful fine-grained tannins. Great acidic play and an extremely long and comfortable finish. All in balance, great wine! A notch up compared to the same wine in the previous vintage. No shame in drinking this young, but the patient ones will probably be rewarded with even more graceful complexity. Great wine!
