Community Tasting Notes 5

  • Jzizzle Likes this wine: 89 points

    December 15, 2020 - Nice cabernet, on the lighter side with ripe fruit and nice acidity. Not a ton of complexity, but pleasant drinking.

    November 27, 2020 - Deep ruby in colour, pronounced flavour intensity with developing notes of red cherry, cassis, smoke, savoury, liquorice, earth, clove, green bell pepper, mint, fig, prune. Dry, high acidity, tannin and alcohol. Full-bodied, pronounced flavour intensity and medium+ finish.

    September 21, 2020 - Good, clean fruit. Cherry, a little coffee in the house. Palate had a very subtle dried fruit character. Tannin and acidity remain on the palate, suspect this has a few more years in it.

    September 15, 2020 - Struggled to get into this, tannins were prominent and fruit one-dimensional. Maybe an Aussie style thing, but I prefer other cabs.

    July 9, 2020 - Deep dark ruby colour. Blackcurrant and blackberry fruit with some polished oak table. The palate is ripe with thick black juice with a little bit of oak spice. I like Jim Barry wines but this isn’t for me.
