Community Tasting Notes 2

  • Shrewsram Likes this wine: 93 points

    June 17, 2021 - Thought i'd try this again.

    Still feels focused and nicely defined. Black cherry fruit, a distinct coolness and poise, fragrant blackberry and dark flowers, vaporous blue fruits a sweet touch of crème de cassis, rich raspberry and some attractive new wood. Feels very clean.

    Medium (+) weight, has a silkiness about it. Ripe and very juicy, but showing a touch of that astringency and grip. Attractive, fragrant cassis and raspberry fruit, floral too – long and fine.

    The astringency and bitterness I got yesterday (from both) has almost vanished.

    June 16, 2021 - Opaque, very glossy, with a vivid purple rim.
    Dark and focused nose, displaying soft notes of exotic woods, black cherry and cassis fruit, ripe plum, sawn wood and dark flowers. Very ripe, not super pronounced but measured.

    Nice energy on the palate – lively acidity gives a chewy sensation, and there is greater grip compared to the Sarget. There is a little astringency that feels derived from wood, or maybe stems (?). Very ripe, juicy with great intensity and concentrated without being overblown. Rich liqueur-esque red fruits, black savoury bass notes, and liquorice.
    Has an easy, silky core, but that astringent frame… Need to taste these again to be sure.
