Community Tasting Notes 5

    March 9, 2010 - This wine is an interesting wine. The nose found cedar and mint with eucalyptus undertones. My eye saw a deep rich garnet hue. On the tongue there were green pepper and tart berries and cherries with sweet vanilla undertones. There were medium tannins and a medium finish. There was a nice balance to the wine. 2003 (the year of extraordinary heat in Europe in the summer) produced some unusual but interesting wines, and I would put this in that category. Overall it is a nice quaff.

    February 23, 2010 - Delicious, though perhaps not the most perfect or elegant Brunello. Big and bold with both acid and tannin, but with some nice silky softness through the middle. Flavor notes of meat, blood, leather, chocolate, some black cherry tucked in there too. Youthful.

    February 14, 2010 - Terrible across the board. Nose of acetone, no fruit. Very sour, dry cherry on the palate, with briar and a very rough, cedar tannic finish. Did not even finish the bottle.

    May 10, 2009 - I kept hoping and waiting for this wine to round out in the glass but it never did. I had hints and wisps of true Brunello qualities, then then they were washed away by acid and tannins. 2003 was a hot year, so I expected this wine to be a little "sweaty" and edgy, but I just lacked the depth and richness is needs to be considered a decent offering from that year. At $32/bottle on sale, I'm not complaining too much, but I really hope the next bottle or two offers some promise that it will mature over time.

    September 8, 2008 - Martin Scott Portfolio Tasting 2008 (East Side of Central Park, NYC): Tasted with JoeG. It was young, but I can't understand my tape well enough to tell whether it was young and drinkable or young and tight.
