Community Tasting Notes 7

    November 4, 2019 - A gift from our friends who are opening up a little wine shop in France. This was a bottle that they thought I would really appreciate and they were right! I don’t often drink Tannat, mostly because I rarely see it, but I would totally be down to drink it more often if this is representative of the grape. On the nose, it was a little horse blanket giving me the impression that there was just a touch of Brett but only just. Mostly, it was raspberries and espresso. On the palate, it was raspberries, tart cherries, dark chocolate and espresso. The tannins seems to build over the two hours we enjoyed the bottle but I didn’t find them punishing. Good acid. I want more of this!

    July 5, 2019 - Dark berries and some spices in the aroma and palate. Medium acid and tannins. Very well integrated oak. Some bitterness.

    May 14, 2019 - Kind of a Bordeaux-esque flavor profile, with strong tannins. Some hard edges at this point, but they softened with extended air and more fruit emerged. Did not get overwhelming oak as mentioned in a previous note, and I am very sensitive oak influence. Overall, I found this to not be a very memorable or distinctive red, but may improve with some age.

    November 7, 2018 - Brumont's Wines Masterclass (Bouscasse et Montus) (Lavinia - Madrid): Hard as a pelota of baseball in the mouth. All wood with roasted notes. Its time will come. Or not. On the nose stands out for a vegetable note with some minerality. Also smells like memories of fresh red fruit. The three varieties are mixed just at the end of the process.

    Duro como una pelota de frontón en boca. Todo madera con nota torrefactas. Su hora llegará. O no. En nariz destaca por una nota vegetal con algo de mineralidad. También parecen recuerdos de fruta roja fresca. Se mezclan al final las tres variedades.
