Community Tasting Note

  • Lord of the Bottles Likes this wine: 96 points

    August 4, 2021 - Poured a tasting gass, decanted remainder. On pop n pour the tasting glass exhibited a powerful bouquet of redcurrant and smoke, almost mistaken for a right bank style. Palate tight but bright red color and red fruit with high acidity. When we sat down nearly 1.5 hours later the colour had darkened, as had the nose and palate, very syrupy fruit with a beautifully balanced finish of red fruit, black fruit. The first glass was the best as the wine started closing up so it seems the best way to drink this is only a very short decant. 96-97
