Community Tasting Notes (46) Avg Score: 90.6 points

  • Identical to last year's note:
    A food wine more than a drink on its own bottle.
    Slight baked/prune profile to initial palate which others have also commented on here (Is this correct then?). Flavours of sour cherry and plum follow.
    Remains pretty tannic with medium to high acidity.
    Remarkably no sediment to be seen in the bottle. Feels like there's potential longevity through the tannin and acidy profile but keep an eye on it to make sure the fruit isn't going into a past it/baked profile.

  • rustic dark berry, walnut, earth. Lots of concentration. Med/- tannin. Rather earthy and grassy. Unruly and adolescent.
    Day 3, wow his nose has gained lots of power. Pulled itself together today too. Cherry, plum, and terrifyingly good tonight. Medium tannin, shows a touch of wood to the palate. The acid is big, and doesn't fall completely into place, but, f***, something wonderful happened to this wine over the last two days. Blockbuster today! Continues to gain ground. Deep and complex aromas. Marmite, dark berry, earth, a bit frightening, remind me of some Priorat/Roussillon. Dark and earthy. Dark and dries, but not overripe. Some black olive, leading to nail polish.
    Day 5, holding on wonderfully, and the most generally approachable of the days open. Dark black fruit, some roast, reminds me of 03 Aalto PS without the coconut oil. Black licorice, still imposing structure. F***, let's extend this drinking window to 2042. Drink again in 2022 at the earliest.

  • a 15% bruiser of a Chianti; very ripe fruit, almost raisiny (chianti, amarone-style?); some tobacco and dried herbs (mint?) in background; but whole package becomes overwhelming -- full body, high alcohol, sharp acidity

  • remains pretty tannic with sour cherry and plum (boardering on showing as prune) flavours giving plenty of rusticity.
    remarkably no sediment to be seen in the bottle. Feels like there's no rush to drink this yet but keep an eye on it to make sure the fruit isn't going into a past it/baked profile

  • May be past prime drinking window. Very muted nose of prune, oak, baking spice. Overly dry for most I'd imagine. Not a throw away bottle but had to work through it for sure.
