2005 Quinta de la Rosa

Post by TLW » 16:17 Mon 25 Jun 2018

At QdlR's restaurant. Not decanted, but straight from the freshly opened bottle - definitely needed a proper decant.

Probably not fair given the circumstances, but nearly opaque, initially very alcoholic. Taste of prunes, not terribly well knit. My guess is that a proper decant with time in the decanter would have helped a great deal.
