Community Tasting Notes 16

  • Stuart10er Does not like this wine: 84 points

    January 16, 2022 - Odd aroma like burnt wood. Taste is sweet like raisins and the tannins seem disconnected. Doesn’t seem like an off bottle, just maybe not my thing.

    November 27, 2021 - Great value at $18 for a weekday red. Quite well balanced, black cherry, cassis fruit but not a fruit bomb. Soft dusty tannins and medium acidity structure. A bit of tobacco and tea add a little complexity.

    July 11, 2021 - Quite bizarre, loads of shoe polish on nose and palate, or VA, benzin. Quite fruity, but goodness what a chemical by note…

    March 22, 2021 - Pop and pour. On the first day cherry, cassis. Classic green CS notes. Tannins not prominent. After storing in the fridge for 2-3 days the greenish notes were gone, so this might improve a bit with more time in the bottle. Still good to drink now. Nothing exciting about the wine, a bit boring. Very Good (88).
