Plum wine from Japan. So good. — 14 days ago
Blinded a dear buddy in the wine trade on this tonight, guesses all over the place, in a great spot, want to see this in 10+Y.
Nose has crushed blackberries, ripe plum, dried plum, dried tart cherries, moist mahogany and faint moist soil. Palate has tart plum, light molasses, blackberry compote, faint leather notes and fine tannins. Not as good as day one, but no slouch on day three. A wonderful experience, many years in the bottle to go ahead. — 5 days ago
Nose of plum, blackberry, and earth. On the palate, black fruits dominate, with plum, earth, and black pepper. Finish goes on quite a while, with drying black fruits. Pleasantly surprised by this wine. Drink, or hold up to 10 years.
