2008 Taylor's Quinta de Terra Feita

Post by AHB » 22:07 Mon 05 Jul 2010

Grapey nose, perhaps still a little tanky. Silky texture, huge tannisn dominating everything else. A lot of patience allows the tannins to soften to reveal a moderately fruity core. The aftertaste and finish are dominated by tart blackcurrants fruit. 83-85/100. Not to my taste and I am not convinced that the fruit will outlive the tannin. 5 July 2010.
