Community Tasting Notes 4

    June 19, 2021 - PHMG WAG: Two Shots and a Vertical Tasting (Lyon Quarantine Site): As always these wines can be polarizing but the crowd tonight did not mind the moderate C-funk. Blackberry and plum flavors are not quite hidden by the pepper steak, anise, iodine and leather notes. Surprisingly tannic, wait a year, then until 2033.

    February 18, 2021 - Rhône Variety Tasting hosted by TCWC (Virtual): The sample has now been in my glass for exactly one hour and while there's a little more going on, that weedy element has gotten stronger too. Bright red fruit, hints of pepper, weedy and vegetal, and something along the lines dill as well. Full-bodied. Red fruit and weedy vegetal tones on the palate, picking up a little bit of earth along the way. My last place wine, Domino's 5th place. 90-91 pts.

    February 18, 2021 - Rhône Variety Tasting hosted by TCWC (Virtual): Blind. Light crimson red color. Pine and red berry fruit notes with weedy, vegetal undertones (brettanomyces). Flavors of tar, red and black fruit with decent underlying acidity.

    I initially guessed Cayuse as Baron's wines tend to be a bit bretty, but as I changed my guesses elsewhere I had to change this as well and settled on the CndP.

    My #5, Domino's #1 (guessed Chave)
    3rd overall, 6 pts

    February 18, 2021 - Rhône varietals with TCWC (Chicago, IL): Opulent sweet black and blue fruit on the nose. Super sweet on the palate, with a very consistent profile to the nose, though perhaps it's the blue fruit that shows more prominently here. Some smoky tones, but a slight disjointedness/hollowness on the palate and the alcohol poking out on the back end. This is a hotter wine than I generally like, but there are certainly some proper Rhone tendencies in this bottle.
