Community Tasting Note

    February 14, 2021 - Is there a better wine to pair with Valentine's day than Calon Segur? Clearly not an original thought by me given the couple of folks who beat me to posting tasting notes on this one.

    My first time trying the 1995, and happy to report it's in a great place right now. After a 1 hour decant, day 1 showed an enjoyable/comforting musty nose of old books and tobacco with red fruits on the palate. The nose calmed down a bit for Day 2 and was more reminiscent of tree bark with more blue fruits showing up on the palate. Tannins are fine, drying and well integrated.

    Don't see this improving much more from here, so don't be afraid to drink now or hold, as it has the tannins and acid to go many years more.

    Paired wonderfully with ribeye steaks simply seasoned with Maldon salt and a mix of white and black pepper.
