Community Tasting Notes 8

    December 26, 2020 - Nose of crushed rocks, berries, spice — feels a tad muted and indistinct on the nose. Comes alive much more on the palate with fresh cracked black pepper, incense, a touch of baking spice and black fruit. Some nice palate intensity.

    Texturally there’s some dusty tannins and medium acid. There is a slightly rough hewn quality about it, feels a little rough and harsh around the edges. Still, solid value and enjoyable wine.

    December 5, 2020 - Full bodied and strongly tannic initially, but softened considerably after 6 hours in an open bottle. Was a little much for roasted chicken but not bad

    October 9, 2020 - Very good, especially for the price point (12.99). Even better the 2nd day.

    September 27, 2020 - Ho hum. Seemed bland, lacking complexity. Drinkable, but nothing special.

    July 10, 2020 - Quite a dense nose black fruits, some herbs, a little oaky spice. The palate was quite full and lots going on with some powdery tannins, fruit, oak, spice and nice acidity. Although there is a lot going on it doesn't detract from an enjoyable wine. Not my normal style but that should never stop you to #giveanewwineago this is available @harrogatewines for £16 and I certainly was happy paying that for it. 86 points
