Community Tasting Notes 29

    May 29, 2022 - 醒酒器两个小时,深宝石红色,闻香有一股肉鲜,新鲜红黑果混合着香草和香料味,入口酸度中高,酸度感觉是三只里最酸的,单宁紧致,有些抓人,黑果香气为主,酒体强劲,香气浓郁,后段辛辣,伴随着香草巧克力和面包香气。三支酒里最强壮的一支,果味成熟,口感新鲜,现在喝还有点新,从单宁的感觉应该再放个十年才进入适饮巅峰期说不定,它不是三支里我最喜欢的,但我猜这款酒评分应该挺高的。

    November 1, 2020 - Bad oak/musty taint. Also past best - clear age on the rim, good mouthfeel (rich and almost sweet), but fruit has left the building. Very disappointing. Has probably suffered from less than perfect storage for a few years.

    July 1, 2020 - Rich, complex, with black cherry, mint, tobacco, cigar box, coffee, loam. black tea, cocoa. Long finish.

    The wait is over!, Episode #100, 10/4/2006 (link) (93-94) points

    (VERITE LA MUSE RED MERITAGE) CONGRATULATIONS on the 1st 100!! (This wine previously seen on Ep #1); NOSE-big nose, really dark blackberry currant, hint of plum, alcoholic; TASTE-really tight grip, really firm tannins, dry on mid-palate, long finish, black licorice, extremely complex & rich, dryer than I remember on Ep. #1, black currant, an obvious OAK on the mid-palate through the finish, good for Bordeaux drinkers, will cellar for 10-15 years; GV-93/94
