Community Tasting Note

  • Nipperu Does not like this wine: 85 points

    July 18, 2020 - clear deep ruby

    Nose of fresh black fruit, plums
    Vanilla, spice
    Alcohol/menthol
    Hint of graphite pencil
    Not a lot otherwise

    Dry
    Med+ tannins
    Med+ acidity
    Med body
    Med- finish
    Med alcohol
    Very short on the palate, not much impression of fruit, what there was seemed dusty and dried.

    Overall meh. Bargain bin buy but would not get another bottle. Tannins too harsh for the fruit- by the time they're manageable it'll be like drinking tea colored alcohol.

    Edit: after a 90min decant - tannins have greatly moderated. Now drinkable but not entirely pleasant. Finish is short but alcohol burn lingers - a little unbalanced.
