I was a bit surprised by the lack of tannin and the fresh acidity
I also got that, bit porty at the end
I think it’s gotten a little less savoury since opening.
But yes also boozy at the back
Liking the palate but yeah, bit of a kick at the finish there, I agree.
I was wondering about this — from our end it now smells quite sweet-fruit dominant — there’s earthiness there for sure, but it’s not what’s leaping out
better on the palate than I expected
Lacks concentration, quite watery at first, then, grippy powdery tannins, fresh acidity, spice, pleasantly ripe berry and plum fruit.
I think sweet on the nose but not a massive amount more. Our bottle definitely light on both tannin and acidity
a bit of cherry drops
I’m not enjoying it as much as I was hoping to if I’m honest. Maybe a bit too subtle or too savoury for me, I’m not sure, but it doesn’t have something I want. Fruit? Complexity?
We’re finding it a bit ‘meh’ overall. Nothing wrong here, just a bit anonymous.
I’d call this a decent luncheon claret…
Agree on the tannins. Definitely feels hotter than 14% suggests. I think the palate has more fruit than the nose.
Not doing much for us either
reminds me a bit of the Alsace PN from the previous TWS taste
Yes my previous summaries on admittedly poorer vintages were: “Smooth easy drinking but unexciting.” and “Inoffensive but unexciting.”
Probably terribly poor form to say but actually it’s much more tasty if you take a gulp than a sip…
Anyone nibbling some cheese? Bit of food helps.
