It's only wine but I like it
It's only wine but I like it

My notes are from the '07 vintage. Ripe wine here, in fact over-the-top ripe. Amarone-like 16.3% alcohol and you can definitely tasted it - like someone added vermouth to the must. Sure, CdP are ripe wines, but this is just beyond reason. The grapes for this wine were simply picked 10-14 days too late, I'm sure in an effort to impress a certain influential critic. I actually found it work to finish a glass. Tasted April 2015.
