Community Tasting Notes 5

    September 15, 2015 - Monthly Tuesday group #001: Pomerol (By me): This is a 100% Merlot wine of 26 years old vines from the plateau. A very creamy and clearly Merlot bouquet with red and dark berries. On the palate very round with red fruits and chocolate, a bit lactic still, good acidity and round, soft tannin. Red currant acidity in the finish. Elegant style. Still a bit too young. Wait at least until 2018. Will probably drink nicely 3+ years after that. 89 - 90

    March 12, 2015 - A lighter side of Pomerol. Needed 1 hour in decanter to smooth out. Medium garnet color. Nose of red currant, raspberry, baking spice, truffle, caramel, and subtle oaky vanilla. Medium-bodied, slightly thin on the palate. Tannins in check for such a young wine, but still need some rounding out. Medium-plus finish. A good buy.

    September 18, 2011 - Fruit forward with a lovely purity of fruit to it. Drinking very nicely right now.

    October 12, 2009 - Medium deep. Moderate slightly lifted aroma of red berries with vanilla/caramel and wet leaves. Med.+ body, quite fruity palate of plums, stone bitterness and a touch of spice. Gaining sweetness, which leads to medium strawberry/redcurrant aftertaste. Rather simple in this company.
