Formal Hall

Tasted on Sunday, 7 Nov 2010

Baron de Badassiere 09. Picpoul de pinet
CWM, £8. B

Nice fruit, fat, generous but short. Loamy, like chenin, nice acidity, not aggressive. Inoffensive, perfectly drinkable wine..

Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon 04
CWM, £11. A-

A very correct expression of cabernet. Plenty of dark fruits, mellowed by a touch of oak, some greenness, like peppers, maybe even some leafy notes still there. Fragrant on the nose, palate is full and generous, plenty there going on, good width. Tannins have largely resolved, certainly doesn't grip, nice acidity, unfortunately not a particularly long aftertaste. Good quality though, well made.

Seifried Sweet Agnes Riesling 09
