twstaste

#181

cigar box, smoky


#182

Blackcurrant, yes, and a touch of vanilla but a bit of a subdued nose for a Cab Sauv.


#183

My grandads empty tobacco pipe, cloves, smelly manure filled Irish fields, pencil shavings, …and MENTHOL… so much menthol…dark chocolate…… what a nose…


#184

Yum, oaky dark fruits. Ripe, sweet … black forest gateau.


#185

Cloves - yes - well done you


#186

basically everyone enjoying this and looking forward to a taste!


#187

A little surprised I’m still finding it developing in glass; I’ve had it dcanted for 4 hours and in the glass for 40 mins. But as your post appeared @Leah I was thinking tobacco pipe.


#188

(That would be me…! :speak_no_evil: I just love, looooove Lebanese wine and I think Chateau Ksara is often overlooked for bigger names like Musar and they make just STUNNING wines!)


#189

Tobacco, chalk, menthol…


#190

Poured a glass out about an hour ago but should’ve done it waaaay before. Still a bit muted. Getting whiffs of dark fruit and vanilla but not much else.


#191

Have to agree with you there!


#192

Bingo! Love this. Some kind of aniseed and smoky meatiness too.


#193

After the pipe it’s moved on to cigar box!


#194

Chalk thank you @Herbster for giving a sophisticated translation for dusty🙂


#195

Definitely a step up from the regular bottling :+1:


#196

Go on, let’s taste!! Does it live up to the nose? What are your thoughts?


#197

Twas the lady of the house!


#198

I read that as church nonsense :man_facepalming:


#199

The tasting notes say succulent and I’d agree with that


#200

Mrs CC: hefty does of 80% or above dark chocolate for me, tasting-wise
