Getting the hang of tasting wines, with a growing appreciation for reds.
Really lovely earthy, leather, and tobacco notes with some dark fruit (blackberries or black currants). Still has some of that stereotypical VA cab franc honeysuckle bright and yeasty notes. This has cellared well! (43% Merlot, 36% Cab Sauv, 14% Cab Franc, 7% petit Verdot) — 12 days ago
Nice full to medium bodied, cherry and fennel and some cooking spices maybe. Some spiciness and smoky leather maybe too. — a month ago
Albariño: a little sweet , some limestone, floral maybe, and a little tropical fruit? — 17 days ago
Really nice, lots of leather and green pepper, some floral honeysuckle type taste and fragrance. Not s lot of fruit, but maybe some dried currant or blueberry. — a month ago
Okay, not a lot going on. Some smoky notes and pepper here and there with some dull fruit. Medium bodied and very mellow tannins. — a month ago
