Community Tasting Note

  • ProfAvi wrote: 90 points

    July 8, 2020 - I think I may have over scored this wine simply because I bought the case EP and have just got it delivered from storage.
    After 13 years it's got to be nice right?

    When I bought it I was into big reds.
    In the intervening years my tastes have changed.

    I was therefore not excited to open this bottle as I usually am with wines I've cellared.
    Lovely colour - not quite red but not quite purple either.
    Evident legs.
    Spice, pepper, espresso, cough syrup on the nose.
    On the palate, cooked red fruits with a zip of acidity reminiscent of some Kent cherries I've eaten recently. Smooth tannins that coat in a nice way the tongue, but the finish is a touch bitter, maybe from the high, for me now, alcohol level.
    Will drink some today and Vacuvin the rest for tomorrow.
