Community Tasting Notes 6

    June 21, 2012 - In fact this wine becomes more and more beautiful. There are black fruits and leather in the bouquet. Some earth, herbs and tobacco as well. On the palate a very juicy wine with good fresh acidity, black fruits and soft, but still firm tannin. The wine is ready now, but it will be no problem to keep this until 2015.

    February 8, 2011 - Tasted this wine 24 hours after it was opened and I was told it was completely locked just after opening. Now it shows itself completely. Drinking it completely blind I thought it was a Ribera del Duero, with a lot of sweetness and a good dose of acidity and oak. Red as well as black ripe forest fruits. Very juicy, warm and harmonious. The tannin is soft and still offers a bite. Next bottle in 2013 and it can last probably several years longer.

    January 26, 2011 - Still quite youthful with a lot of firm tannin, cassis and plums and later also forest fruits. See also previous notes.

    April 24, 2008 - Very fruity bouquet with red and black berries an cherries. In the taste a lot of ripe cherries and some apple. Dry but juicy. Soft tannin. Full bodied. This wine should age for a few more years.

    October 11, 2007 - Violet red, quite youthful in appearance. Tight, showing mainly smoky-sweet oak over rather high-toned fruit, with the oak winning over the fruit with air time. Sweet-tart, you can really taste the Alicante here, but it's very delicious, finishing sausage-like and with super brightness. Gives the impression of a young, very delicious wine that just lacks expressiveness/complexity. The oak obliterates most other aromas this might offer, but thankfully it doesn't interfere with the great palale impression. Air brought a bit of tobacco but not much else in terms of evolution. I did not get either the overtness nor the excess acidity noted by the prior poster, and this did not remind me of any wine, Bordeaux or not, made from merlot or the cabernets. Perhaps this deserves a shot as an experiment in the cellar.
