Community Tasting Notes 5

    March 22, 2020 - Color: Transparent brown like mahogany . Nose: Alcohol. Oxidized notes like sherry. Roasted nuts. A hint of chocolate and coffee and fruit. Mouth: There is a slight sourness that I love. Very expressive. Slightly bitter espresso in the finish. Quite lively and fresh. The fruit reminds me of cherries. Not too sweet. Very balanced. I love the slightly coarse/powdery mouthfeel.

    November 11, 2012 - Deep color, chocolaty taste and lovely overall tannins - the wine will keep well and be at peak in 2013.

    October 24, 2012 - Wika vinfestival 2012 (Køge): Farven er let brunlig, blød, medium kraftig og egentlig lidt kedelig men dog acceptabel.
