Community Tasting Notes 3

  • Woodford Likes this wine: 90 points

    August 9, 2020 - At the open:
    Smells of sweet red and purple fruit (plums) and a touch of stagnate water
    Tastes of warm blackberries and branches; a lingering bitterness of chocolate earth
    Moderate fine grained tannin on the gums

    After 1 hour:
    Smells of alluring cassis
    Tastes of confident, straightforward, dark red fruits and stewed blueberries.

    This is a lovely claret with convincing, but not overpowering fruit; a perfect Virginia weekday wine.

    April 25, 2020 - At the open:
    Smells of roses, violets, and sweet fruit
    Tastes of light tart raspberries and slightly sour cherries

    After 30 mins:
    Smells of chocolate covered tart cherries, granite, & sweet blue fruit
    Tastes of reserved, but confident slightly sour fruit and earth

    Medium bodied. Delightful claret; very well balanced and reliable.
