Community Tasting Note

  • HL Pong Likes this wine: 97 points

    December 24, 2020 - Air for 2hrs,

    Appearance: deep ruby, with beautiful legs

    On nose : pronounced intensity, dark fruit : plums, ripe blue berries, violet flora, lichorice, an hr later it came up with soy source, but it developed into truffle after an hr later, tobacco, cedar wood, vanilla oak, very complex, it has a lot of development still.

    On palate : rich flavour intensity, dark fruit, pine wood, truffle on front palate, fine but substantial tannin, and med+ acidity on med palate, savoury and a light dark chocolate bitterness with high alcohol at the back. Long finishing, opulent and juicy aftertaste

    I will say this is a premium one and I do not feel regret to open it now. As everybody knows that 05’ is an extraordinary vintage and I believe this wine has a lot of room to go. I would say this wine just like a 20yrs marriage, substantial with fulfilment. This is my 2nd bottle and it is much better than the one that I opened 2 yrs ago. No regrets, Cheers!
