#TWSTaste - Wine Champs

Good substitution :+1:


#122

Okay, I’m sniffing the wine so I don’t keep screaming at the telly - I think it’s got lovely spice and warmth and perfumed fruit - definitely cherry!

Ooh, great shout about figs, guys!


#123

Lovely rich mature colour against the paper. Nose: slow to reveal but certainly dates, and a dark spicy something hanging about!


#124

I like the ‘earthy’ notes too. Makes me want to hug something… a tree, perhaps! :deciduous_tree:


#125

Dried fruit on the nose, definitely. Great aroma - still sniffing…


#126

That’s it!! Damp beech forest.


#127

Appearance: decent intensity (med-high), lovely rich ruby.

Nose: quite intense, plummy (like plums/damsons baked in vanilla), dates, hint of prune, cherries & kirsch, almost a rum-and-raisin feel to it. Touch of cinnamon?


#128

I get black cherries on the nose, with a definite hint of liquorice plus some figgy & leafy notes too.

On the palate it is surprisingly silky and rich, some black liquorice again with some ripe blackberry and cherry fruit.

There’s a hint of bitterness to the fruit - is that an Italian trademark? - but this adds complexity to the taste.


#129

Totally agree! I just mentioned ‘Silan’ (date syrup)- it really smells like it! Got to have a crumpet and Silan when this is all over!!!


#130

Let’s get tasting because let’s face it we could all do with a sip of wine to calm the nerves…


#131

We love the red but Glenn Hoddle is making us nervous!


#132

With my porridge tomorrow


#133

Fig, bramble, raspberry and spice


#134

Will keep reading but sorry I’m out , boys not well . Enjoy the rest :wink:


#135

Good on the palate too! Dry, with a really pleasing acidity, tannins are smooth; getting black cherry and bramble, with a kick of clove… Yum! :heart_eyes:


#136

Cedar, woody, hot wet tarmac, black fruits, Christmas candles


#137

Hope he feels better
I’m feeling a bit dodgy watching the game


#138

Fruity And smooth. Went well earlier with a minted lamb burger.


#139

Hope he gets better, @Leah! Nothing sadder than an unwell child. I use to get ill with my girl in solidarity… couldn’t bare it when she was unwell… Hope you get some rest too…


#140

Cinnamon, wild bilberry, quite a bit of cherry
