Community Tasting Notes 6

    April 19, 2013 - Given the previous bottles there must have been a problem here. High acidity, fruit gone and no secondary flavours.

    September 25, 2011 - Beautiful bottle. Fruits, herbs and underbush on the nose. Taste was fruity with mature notes from underbush. Long finish and great balance. Wish I had more of these.

    January 23, 2011 - Red-brick color. Smelled strawberries and rasperryies with a strong pepper note. Very nice in mouth - perfectly balanced thanks to high acidity with straberries, rasperries and a hint of some darker fruits together with some earth. Except for the pepper notes this wine tasted more like a bourgogne. Ecellent wine!

    December 17, 2010 - Not decanted. Consumed over 2 hours of which the first hour is needed to find balance. Appearence is not very clear, but this is a phenomena i often find in aged rhone wines. Nose shows development with meaty and mineral notes and some cherry but only in the background. Lovely old-world styled nose, perhaps without real complexity. The taste is medium minus intense, with sour cherries, hints of leather and stony mineral. Tart decent finish. Very good wine that likely is at its peak or just past.
