Community Tasting Note

    October 9, 2020 - Clear pale garnet

    On the nose:
    first impressions - horse poop, earth, blackcurrant cola
    Plums
    Spice
    Savory - leather, cured meat
    Mineral - slate? Dusty...

    Dry
    Plums
    Med+ body
    Med+ acid
    Med+ alcohol
    Med+ tannins - fine and grippy
    Med+ finish

    Overall a well made wine - no obvious flaws. Drinkable now b could go another 5-10 years i think. Initial integration of fruit and tannins is underway, secondary characters are quite nice. Good but not magical - not yet.

    Personal thoughts - good but don't really like this more muscular style of nebbiolo. Wondering if more bottle age will tone it down? (Probably unlikely)

    Edit: other tasters noted red fruit and floral notes. I get the floral part but can't say I'm getting red fruit on this bottle. Weird.
