Community Tasting Notes 80

  • caspernick Likes this wine: 91 points

    January 9, 2021 - Very dark bluish purple in the glass with very fine legs, indicative of the 12.5% alcohol. On the nose it is purple fruit, blackberry, damson and cinnamon. The palate is surprisingly fresh, I was expecting a more traditional attack. This one pops with plums, black cherry and lithe tannins. The mid palate gives me cola, black cherry and some strawberry jam. Strange, I know. The finale is really a nice, smooth, fruity affair with really well tamed tannins holding the blackberry and cola flavors on for a good 30 seconds. There is a trace of acidic bite, but it is appropriate and balances the nice tannins. This is a tasty, decent wine that gets 91 points from me. I would drink right away until 2024 with lighter meat dishes, perhaps beer-can chicken or even roast duck breast. Strangely enough the Decanter score of 95 was opposite to the mid 80’s score given by others. I think this is a steal at $20 and it gets 5 stars from me.

    October 21, 2020 - Some garnet in the red. Strawberry, earth, and cola nose. Medium bodied, raspberries, bing cherries, light tannins, honey, and a nice long fruity finish. This was much better on night 2.

    September 14, 2020 - Classic, and delicious. I can see why it won the Decanter “Best in Show” ribbon so proudly displayed on the bottle. Started the night with a corked bottle of a different wine - so glad this one rode to the rescue!

    August 10, 2020 - 3.7 PNP. Pleasant daily drinking Bordeaux. Good fruit, cherry, blackberry, hints of vanilla. Fresh, with very slightly chewy tannins. Medium body. Classic style, ready now, nice QPR for sub $20.
