Community Tasting Notes 1

    March 31, 2010 - Tasted after buying again at G.O. 20% off sale. Wish I had made notes before, because this time I think it's not so good. I think I'm going to check the "flawed" box because it seems to have a slight oxidized character. synth cork (so cork was OK -- go figure). color is clear pale straw yellow, but after a taste, I looked for (and thought I saw) a faint tint of amber. It could just be the style of this wine, and it is a 2006 -- so it's been sitting for a few years. [edit:] the label does say "rich fruit, full body, and smooth finish" -- which are actually NOT things I would expect in a Fume Blanc (which I think of as a very austere Sauv Blanc). I wonder if it is a bit of malo-lactic going on, but then, again, either intentionally or not, I don't think that's something the winemaker would want in a Fume Blanc.
