Community Tasting Notes 1

  • Drinking Trees wrote: 92 points

    March 4, 2018 - Cork pushed slightly above lip of bottle. Cork was very soft and expanded significantly after extraction. Earthy nose, with notes of raspberry, dried leaves, and hints of dark spice. Light, silky mouthfeel, with very faint tannin. The acidity, which dominates the palate, is excellent: it could so easily have ruined the wine if it was even slightly bitter or vinegared; instead it's perky, slightly sour, and not too sharp. Delicate flavours of raspberry and blackberry, with notes of nutmeg, almond, and leather, with the acidity contributing a mildly mouth-puckering lemon juice note. This is past its peak, but drinking very nicely.
