Community Tasting Notes 77

    November 24, 2022 - Thanksgiving Wimps 2022 - James Baldwin Table (La Trompette): I really enjoyed this. My tablemates commented on the fact that I didn't need to keep telling them this fact. Well what can i say - i really enjoyed this. 13.5% abv. On the nose - a bit of pencil lead, but also some vibrant fruits. On the palate - silky tannins, and a voluptuous mouthfeel, but super balanced - fruit / oak / alcohol all in balance. This sat alongside pretty distinguished company and showed well - i'll seek it out again.

    May 9, 2022 - Quite savoury and stern at the outset, developing nicely over the course of the evening to become more rounded and balanced. As always from Corison, an excellent bottle of cabernet - balanced, concentrated, fresh, powerful. I think this will be better in a few years.

    November 18, 2021 - Purchased upon release and cellared under ideal conditions, this opaque ruby wine was decanted off of its substantial sediment and serially tasted over the ensuing 2-3 hours. Highly aromatic, it has taken on additional floral scents of violets and lavender, highlighting a rich core of dark plum and bramble fruit. Full-bodied, freshly acidic and with nicely integrated alcohol (listed as 13.6%), it delivers flavors in line with the aromas, adding notes of cocoa, allspice and tarragon. At this stage, the medium-weight tannins are plush and the oak has fully assimilated. Dense on the mid-palate and lengthy on the back end, this is an elegant Cabernet that is evolving beautifully. Well-cellared bottles should provide pleasure throughout the decade. If you choose to pop the cork, give it at least an hour in decanter. Drink now-2030.

    November 3, 2021 - On the leaner greener side of cab, but has a nice core of pure red fruit. Inviting fruit on entry. Lovely mix of traditional cab flavors. Early maturity with further integration and depth possible. Very much enjoyed.

    April 11, 2021 - I think earlier comments re the fact this is more Bordelais than Napa is really accurate. This actually seemed in a bit of an adolescent phase. At times like a Paulliac, well made but with limited charm, at others hints of greater complexity and warm. Will leave now till 2025
