Community Tasting Notes 4

    September 1, 2017 - Tasted blind. E's birthday at Pan Pac.
    Appearance is clear, deep intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
    Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of ripe dark red cherries, blackberries, licorice, loamy earth, leather, meat. Developing.
    On the palate, dry, medium+ acidity, medium+ alcohol (14%), medium tannins, medium+ body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of ripe dark red cherries, blackberries, licorice, sweet spices, leather, meat, savoury loamy earth. Long finish.
    Very good quality. Guessed New World Pinot Noir correct. This is New World, but undoubtedly a very nice one. Will only improve over the next 4-5 years. Acidity could be better, but nonetheless overall still very balanced.

    December 25, 2016 - Drank this on Christmas Day with others so no detailed notes but overall favourable and I will be happy to leave my 2 remaining bottles of this vintage for 2 to 3 more years before drinking.

    November 12, 2015 - amazing aroma of toasty oak, red berry fruit and plum, florals, and menthol. the latter became dominant with time in glass, and was tastier on topping up.

    November 12, 2015 - Rich herbal aromas with sweet spearmint but possibly a little closed and young, the palate however is outstanding dense fruits and thyme, oregano, touch of cinnamon. I think this will age well for another 10 years or more but is fantastic now
