Community Tasting Notes 5

    May 10, 2022 - Cru Wines Trade Tasting (Bentley Bar & Restaurant, Sydney): Plums, red over blackcurrant a little wood glue, sweet spice, it’s a little tarry on the palate with a smidge of liquorice, tight grainy tannins, long. Time. Okay.

    December 18, 2021 - Had to push the cork through due to it disintegrating away, which seemed odd given it is a 2015 and was stored on its side in a proper cellar.

    Super dark in colour - impressive if it’s natural. Oak but no notable fruit cues on the nose. Decanted for an hour. Very tannic - mellowed with time but it seems one dimensional and lacked depth of fruit, and no real finish.

    I’d recommend holding off opening it for at least another few years.

    October 12, 2021 - Very traditional right bank. Not a terribly expressive nose but what’s there is earthy, funky and dark. On the palate the tannins are in control at this point but there is blackberry, slate and acidity and a short finish.

    May 11, 2021 - With two hours air this was still flat. Four hours in it opened up to dark bing cherry note and stone. The nose was muted throughout.

    July 22, 2019 - Airoldi Fine Wines Winter Tasting (Oak Barrel, Elizabeth Street, Sydney): plums, chocolate, sweet spice, clean. More of the same on the palate accompanied by wonderfully grippy, supporting tannins and alcohol heat on the long finish. Flattering.
