Community Tasting Notes 6

    March 3, 2019 - APPEARANCE: Medium garnet colour.
    NOSE: Initially quite earthy. Then autumn forest notes, dark plum, leather, old strawberry jam, black pepper, empty cigar box and cigar ashes. (88p)
    TASTE: Mature and quite rustic. The arrival is very earthy. On the mid palate soft tannins, dark bitter chocolate, some fruit and a fruity acidity. The exit and aftertaste is again rustic and slightly tannic.
    With prolonged airing (I left it overnight in the fridge) the taste becomes rounder, fruitier and sweeter, moving my taste score from 84 to 86 points.
    Total score 87 points.

    May 12, 2010 - Colour has clear aging signs around the edge, relatively light. Dark red berries and leather on the nose. Taste is well integrated and have very clear signs of aging. Blackcurrant, anis, leather and wood. Medium long. At its peak now?

    May 24, 2009 - More devoloped than previous bottle, with fine aromas of leather and old wood. A very good buy.

    November 6, 2008 - Dark red berries and leather on the nose. Rich and tight on palate, with mature taste and elements of development. Mature tannins, and a moderate length.

    August 3, 2007 - Tight, good, rustic Bourdeaux. Blackcurrant, blackberries, anis, leather. Medium lenght. Needs to be vented for 2-3 hours. Also some residue, so pour it in a decanter.
