Community Tasting Notes 3

  • Nipperu Does not like this wine: 85 points

    July 18, 2020 - clear deep ruby

    Nose of fresh black fruit, plums
    Vanilla, spice
    Alcohol/menthol
    Hint of graphite pencil
    Not a lot otherwise

    Dry
    Med+ tannins
    Med+ acidity
    Med body
    Med- finish
    Med alcohol
    Very short on the palate, not much impression of fruit, what there was seemed dusty and dried.

    Overall meh. Bargain bin buy but would not get another bottle. Tannins too harsh for the fruit- by the time they're manageable it'll be like drinking tea colored alcohol.

    Edit: after a 90min decant - tannins have greatly moderated. Now drinkable but not entirely pleasant. Finish is short but alcohol burn lingers - a little unbalanced.

  • Jake Barnes wrote: flawed

    November 19, 2019 - Not a wine I will try again. It had a fairly decent cab-dominated nose, but that’s the only nice thing I can say about it.

    The central experience here was a briar pit of palate-scorching unripe tannins—the kind that end an evening because the only thing you might be able to taste after one glass is Listerine. Under these tannins, the wine seemed thin and lacking in fruit. It also had very low acidity, and even though it’s only 13% abv, the alcohol peeked out with telltale bitterness on the very short finish. For me, this is undrinkable and thus flawed.
