Krohn 20 year old tawny (B.2006)
The color is still rather dark brown with red highlights. Hazelnuts, brown sugar and molasses on the nose. The palate is rather simple and lacking much in the way of complexity. A big dose of acid and some noticable tannins on the finish. This wine shows notes of dried figs, baked walnuts, toffee, and some herbs. Unfortunitly there is a bit of alcohol on the finish that just is totally out of balance with the rest of this wine, marring what could have been a decent 20 year tawny. The finish is medium but also simple and boring. 85 points.
As a footnote, I actually opened this last night after a dinner with some friends at my house. I had a small glass and ended up not serving it as I thought it was out of balance then. I figured maybe some air might help...guess I was wrong
