    March 7, 2020 - Coravin Session #3 - Grenache vs Zinfandel: [From Coravin]

    The appearance is clear and medium garnet in colour. Tears are visible.

    The nose is clean. The medium(+) intensity aromas show notes of black fruit (stewed black cherry, bramble, cooked blackcurrant, blackberry), bottle-age (subtle worn leather), floral (lavender), and a herbal character (fennel). Swirling reveals additional notes of oak (vanilla, cloves), pungent spice (white pepper, subtle black pepper), and red fruit (raspberry). The wine is developing.

    On the palate, the wine is dry with medium(+) acidity, high alcohol, and medium(+) body. The medium level tannins are ripe and suede in nature. The flavours have a medium intensity and show notes of black fruit (sour black cherry, black plum, bramble), pungent spice (black pepper, subtle green peppercorn), mineral (dry dusty earth), and malolactic conversion (creamy texture). The finish has a medium(+) length and features additional notes of floral (violets) and pungent spice (white pepper).

    This is a very good quality wine. The flavours have a great balance with the acidity and the alcohol. The tannins provide some structure to the wine, but give way to the acidity. The flavours show good concentration (a wine of higher quality would show more concentration and a longer length). In its current state, the wine shows complexity with primary, secondary, and some tertiary characteristics (a wine of higher quality would show more complexity). The primary fruit core appeared to me as being more on the black fruit spectrum, with a very prominent line of black pepper. The oak appeared to be well-integrated; allowing the fruit to take centre-stage. The finish has a good length and showed additional flavours that lingered on the palate in an enjoyable manner.

    The wine drinks well now, but is suitable for ageing. The fruit shows good concentration, and the tannin and acid structure should support the wine as the tertiary notes continue to develop.

    November 15, 2019 - Popped and poured, and drank over two hours. Medium to light body. Just did not hit me in the same (positive) way most CNDP do. Will stick with my Beaucastel.

    October 14, 2019 - OK, demure and lacking vibrancy. Fruit hanging on.
