Community Tasting Notes 2

    January 14, 2015 - I'm actually rating this a point higher than the last one I consumed 2 years ago. This is my final bottle of about 8 I had, and this one is drinking great for its age--such a wonderful food wine. It is fully mature, but I did not get the baked fruit/apple peel flavor that I found in some others. I guess there was a lot of bottle variation in these. Drink up now.

    October 16, 2012 - A fully matured wine, but not yet over the edge (i.e. not oxidized, no apple peel smells, no brown color). I had little hope upon opening this. Purchased about 8 of these in a close-out some years ago when the distributor had already deemed them "over the hill". When originally purchased, those opened showed well, if fruity. A little funk, no problems, just maybe not an outstanding year. But it's OTT, so let's just feel special. So, the years went on and the last time I sampled one (2010) I was very disappointed. Baked fruit, over the edge, not pleasant. Ho ho ho, but my curiosity has paid off tonight. This bottle is perfectly matured and NOT over the edge in any way. I can hold my other 2 a year or more. This is as smooth as sunken in flavors get. The fruit is not baked or too fruity. It is a light style of Mourvedre at this point, but serious. The nose is almost like a Cru Beaujolais. That is a compliment. I still find a tang of acid and metal holding forth, cherry fruit, earth, and a hint of alcohol on the finish, but not distracting. This turned out to be a good investment. When I took the cork out, the wine had only come half way up. Good show OTT.
