Community Tasting Note

  • dpolzien Likes this wine: 93 points

    November 29, 2020 - Absolutely floored by this ... Love when I can get my hands on early Realm wines, and this was no exception! On tasting the first word that comes to mind is 'fresh', as if it was just released ... I've had wines a decade younger that weren't on the same level of freshness. Dark ruby at the core with only a hint of fading at the rim. Blue fruits (black cherry) dominated both on the notes and on the palate, but there were definitely some red fruits vying for attention as well. Nice dusty tannins and good acidity tells me that this has many years ahead. Day 2 = Day 1.

    PSA - took heed of previous taster's note on cork coming apart, and used a durand. Glad I did as I could see the same thing happening to mine.
