Community Tasting Notes 2

    July 20, 2020 - Taste double-blind. Correctly identified as Tempranillo from Rioja or Ribera del Duero (I leaned more Rioja).
    Light color than all of the other wines, with brighter, juicer cherry/plum fruit. A bit of oak influence with mint, spice, and anise making an appearance. Leather and licorice (maybe some Garnacha?) in the blend (which had me leaning Rioja). Not nearly as complex or powerful as the rest of the blind tasting wines.

    March 23, 2020 - Tasted double-blind, incorrectly identified as a 16/17 Paso Robles Zinfandel. Also considered the same vintage Barossa Shiraz.

    Color: Med to deep ruby nearly purple. Noticeable sticky legs.
    Aromas: Med+ intensity. Baked raspberry, blueberry. Heavy use of oak notes of vanilla, caramel, clove, caramel, buttered toast. Pepper, eucalyptus, dried herb. A bit of nail polish (volatile acidity?)
    Palate: high alcohol, dry w perhaps a touch of residual sugar, full-body, med tannins, med+ acidity (perhaps volatile acidity). Candied cherry and blueberry fruit. More oak, pepper, herb, and orange peel.

    In hindsight, I should have strongly considered Spain but the high alcohol and jammy fruit didn't scream Rioja and the lack of tannins didn't scream Priorat. Ribera never popped into my head. The VA aroma transformed into more of a scorched blacktop after a while. According to the bottle, the wine sees 12 months in 100% new french oak.
