Community Tasting Notes 17

    October 17, 2021 - Opened 90 minutes before lunch but not decanted. Tasted upon opening and was ready to go, although the additional time before lunch allowed it to open up a little. Delicious sappy black fruits, nice tannic grip but not over powering, lovely secondary flavours and aromas. A really well balanced wine that is in a great place with lovely flavours and structure without being too much.

    July 16, 2021 - Sensational. Rustic, earthy nose. Palate ticks every box. No need to decant.

    December 27, 2020 - Sehr dunkles Rubin, breite Randaufhellung, etwas trüber Eindruck. Würzig/rotfruchtuge Nase, explosive Aromatik.
    Am Gaumen sehr tolle Balance, schöne Säurestruktur, druckvolle rotbeerige Frucht. Sämige, gut eingebundene Tannine - vielleicht zu gar einen Tick zu brav, etwas zu wenig Ecken und Kanten.

    October 28, 2020 - Tart cherry, sandalwood, organic soil, and tobacco on the nose. More black-fruited on the palate, with blackberry, saddle leather, black pepper and baking spices on the finish. Powerful in structure, with slightly gritty tannins and good acidity keeping the wine fresh. Will hold my remaining bottle another 10 years.
