2011 Taylor

Post by AHB » 21:15 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Golden syrup and black cherries dominate the nose. Lovely entry with round, mouthfilling tannins and pure fruit. Big mid-palate with lots of sour fruit. Lovely sour cherry and chocolate finish. Great fruit and good elegance, but slightly acidic. 93-95. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
