Saturday Tasting Group (Knightsbridge Wine Shop (Northbrook, IL)): Licorice, medium dark liqueured fruit. Rustic underbrush. Old World styled.
Touch of iodine, light rusty gate and road tar. Traditionally styled. Still youthful.
Hard to guess this one - everyone thought it was Bordeaux for sure.

This wine was purchased as future and has been stored perfectly since. It had a high neck fill. Then the wine was decanted for 90 minutes before being poured back into the bottle. We drank the wine with dinner out of Riedel Sommelier Bordeaux stems at 62F The color was clear with a deep ruby garnet hue. The wine was well developed. dominated by earth, sandal wood, mint, medium roast African coffee, and black currants, blackberry, anise, cloves, wet leaves-forest floor, and chocolate. Medium acid levels with a full body. Palate was in line with the nose . This wine possessed a nice complexity and finish with silky round tannins. I think this wine need more time to reach it's full potential. Outstanding

I have been enjoying wines for two decades. Over that time I believe I have exercised my sense of smell to the point that I can articulate what I am tasting and smelling. Obviously there is some subjectivity involved. Try tasting wine with an aroma kit or a aroma wine wheel at the very least. It definitely helps
