Community Tasting Note

  • HL Pong wrote: 92 points

    June 7, 2020 - Appearance: mid garnet with legs and some residual

    On nose : mid+ intensity, dark fruit : cherry, sweet red flora, mint, leather, sweet tobacco leaf, black pepper, roasted nuts, some spiciness, balance and elegant

    On palate : med+ flavour intensity, med acidity, sweet dark fruit : cherry, leather, tobacco leafiness, very smooth and fine tannin, med+ body, high alcohol but not burning, soft black pepper spiciness and mineral savoury with med finishing.

    I am not a Grenache lover but this wine is an exception and this is absolutely an elegant one. The leather flavour is so balance with the sweet tobacco leafiness. I love the elegancy of this wine as the wine is really in premium quality. This wine is best match with lamb chop and I suggest to drink it now and enjoy the peak. No regrets, Cheers!
