Community Tasting Notes 5

    December 15, 2019 - Lovely wine that is maturing slowly, and very well. With a recent tasting of the 2014 in mind, I enjoyed this wine a touch more. 2014 has more chocolate and perhaps more bulk but this has complexity, some prettiness on the nose and some wonderful blueberry notes and the gravelly finish that I normally see more in the Symphony. A cracking Simpatico with a long life ahead.

    October 28, 2017 - I consumed this over 2 x days. The first day it was a bit of a struggle (it could have been my palate though), it seemed heavy handed with the oak displaying excess vanilla. The second day I thoroughly enjoyed it. For me it is a rich and complex wine displaying dark fruits, plum, a touch of prune/raisin, fruit cake and chocolate. It is well structured and has very good length. The structure I look for, being acid, tannin, oak and fruit weight are all in relative balance, but I suspect in 6-8 years time this wine will enter a very good drinking window. Based on this experience, a long decant is required. A quality wine.

    September 18, 2017 - I let this sit in the fridge over a few days after opening and it came into its own on day three. Plums, some blackberry, pepper and spices, liquorice, chocolate, some lavender and a vanilla oak influence that will likely be absorbed over time. Excellent mouth coating web of tannins and a very long finish. Medium to full bodied with a glossiness about it. Will need another three to five years to start strutting its stuff. This will live long in the cellar.

    September 16, 2017 - Brilliant wine. Vinfanticide, but have another 5 so worth it.
