Community Tasting Notes 40

  • caroleandjay Likes this wine: 91 points

    July 20, 2021 - Gave a 30 minute decant but was better at an hour.
    V - Clear, mixture of ruby and garnet, certainly garnet at the edges of the significant meniscus.
    N - Raspberry, blueberry and a bit of plum. Slight smoke, rose and licorice.
    P - A bit jammy with raspberry and black currant. Tobacco, smoke and rose mid palate with a Med+ finish. Alcohol hiding the complexity a bit.

    May 1, 2021 - Method: blind; 60 degrees; Grassl 1855

    Look: medium+ garnet; high+ number of legs medium speed legs

    Nose: blueberry, cola, vanilla, dry herbs, baking spice

    Palate: blackberry, raspberry, pepper, spicy oak, cola, vanilla, licorice, baking spice; medium finish of pepper, dried oregano, dried bay leaf, cinnamon, black tea; dry; medium body; medium+ acidity: low+ tannin

    Overall thoughts: Fairly primary and a lot of notes from new oak, but tasty. I'd like if the oak integrated a bit more. Very good wine.

    December 19, 2020 - Two hour decant. Deep ruby magenta color. Ripe black cherry, thyme, and walnut on the nose. Smooth, dry, modestly creamy palate, with soft acidity. Firm, full tannins on the medium long finish. 65% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre, and 10% Syrah

    December 6, 2020 - My last bottle and alas I discovered I drank the others way to young. This would easily hold it own in a blind CDP tasting.

    September 5, 2020 - Big fruit, tangy, spicy and some white pepper on finish. Barnyard nose blew off in 30 minutes. Paired well with fig prosciutto pizza.
