Community Tasting Notes 4

  • srh Likes this wine:

    May 25, 2019 - Winebar [1 Rosé, 3 Whites, 8 Reds, & 7 *shared* bottles] from 05/24/19 (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): Frt from the Coppermine Road, Gateway, Long Gully Road, & Mollydooker Home Vyds of McLaren Vale, picked 19th April–5th May; Barrel fermented & aged in 100% AM oak (58% new & 42% one yr old); 16.5% ABV, 3 g/L R.S., & 3.55 pH; 10,100 cases made @ $55 sugg retail.

    N: Closed, but DEFINITELY *ripe* berries with intensity lurking

    P: MF body; RNDISH entry with NICE, ALMOST swtish frt (approaching threshold R.S.?) met by astringent pucker which slowly evolves into a LONG, finish with a tangy/SWTNESS (30:70) to the dusty tannins. For now & into early '22? My VG+/EXC- in this style that teases one's swtness threshold. 92 pts WS, who feels this will last WAY longer than I do. [This vendor's $41.95 is as good as any of wine-searcher's current postings.]

    May 4, 2019 - Sweeter blue fruits and a stronger sense of chemical manipulation that other iterations. Lacking the structure to support the mass extraction, and the back features oak imparted bitterness. More power to all who enjoy such...wine-like beverages. The most unbalanced in a flight of modern wines tasted on this occasion.

    April 2, 2019 - Nose is cheese, mineral, sweet dark fruit. Palate is all sweet, generic blue/black fruit, with some cheesiness and just a hint of mineralitu. Indistinct, way too sweet, no structure or finish to speak of. 4/10

    February 12, 2019 - Also super jammy, but preferred the cab. Darker blue fruit here
