Community Tasting Notes 3

    April 14, 2016 - One of my favourites from Languedoc. Dark and dense purple colour, very intense nose, full of black fruits and some flowers. Pure fruit on the palate too, medium+ acidity, tannins already integrated but discreetly present. Ripe fuits cen be felt.

    November 4, 2015 - Yes, Virginia, there's a barnyard in the Languedoc! Funky nose blows off, revealing red (mostly) fruit, a tad cooked and figgy, garrigue, chalk, medium (+) finish. Medium/medium (+) tannins soften on the second day, balanced out by acidity and a nubbly-textured mouthfeel.

    A total bargain at <$15.

    September 2, 2015 - Wednesday night tasting at Ruby (Ruby Wine Merchant, SF): Tasted blind:
    Medium body stemmy scratchy tannins. Dry. Elevated acid. Earthy. Reductive and has off aromas. Nail polish. Coin polish.
    Elevated acid.
    12% alcohol? (actually 14.5%!)
    Medium tannins.
    Medium body.

    Conclusions.
    Pinot noir or gamay?
    Quite fecal.
    Pinot from Burgundy.
