Belated post of a very special vacation Wine; this was my first time getting to really sit down and enjoy an Emidio Pepe and give it my full concentration. The 2010 is actually in a great spot right now very tertiary: ￼￼￼ dried red fruit and earth and lots of smoky meat like flavors! It was a splurge and I’m glad I did it 😊￼￼￼ — 12 days ago
Words escape me...Notes later, best E&M Rosé to date!
Nose has ripe cranberry, mashed raspberry, blood orange flesh, mashed strawberry, recently cut grass, oak bark and a pint of cherries.
Palate has tart cherry, strawberry, over-ripe raspberry, fresh Clementine peel, (minor) baking spice, cold plum with a long finish. Weighty yet finessed
I can't believe I'm stating this, but I think this wine exceeds the 2017 version, which I thought was bonkers, this is better! — 15 days ago
Vanilla and butterscotch sweets on the nose.
Palate has sweet notes of caramel, toffee and spice.
Has a nice balance of flavours and aromas whilst remaining medium bodied and smooth.
A nice Irish blended whiskey. The blend is 80% malt which makes it desirable.
