  • 2012 Clusel-Roch Côte-Rôtie – France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, Côte-Rôtie (2/27/2018)
    WIML90

    Tasted double blind.

    Garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of potpourri, rose petals and leather. Flavors of red cherries, raspberries and plums. Medium to bright acidity, medium to firm tannin, medium to full bodied. Drink now with air or continue to hold.

    My guess was this is a Tempanrillo or a Tempanrillo/Cabernet Sauvignon blend from the Toro region of Spain, likely a 2012 Bodegas y Viñedos Maurodos Toro Viña San Román or similar. (90 points)
