Community Tasting Notes 3

    October 9, 2011 - Possibly corked. Off Flavour. Strong, bitter and harsh

    August 1, 2006 - A very nutty nose with toasty, caramel oak and some interesting wild, funky complexity. The palate shows the same caramel oak coming in over the top of any fruit - but there is lots of intensity here, it is a wine that intends to take no prisoners. An interesting contrast to the pure, focused Laroche that came before it. I thought the Laroche a better wine, but I liked aspects of this as well.

    July 14, 2005 - Sydney Winestar Offline - Castel Mola Restaurant (Leichhardt, New South Wales, Australia): Loads of overpowering sweet caramel oak dominating whatever fruit there was to be had. Very much out of balance. It might come together in 2-3 years, but I can’t really be sure.
