Neptune’s Trident 2013

Neptune's Trident 2013From Lot 18/The Tasting Room

Aaron:  The nose is a bit oaky with some mild fruits and the flavor definitely tastes like a blend.  This is very smooth and drinkable but a little on the sweet side.  There are tons of cherry and strawberry so it gets a 90 for dinkability but only an 86 for complexity.

Teri: There is a unique cinnamon clove-berry smell on this blended red. Overall a light feel but I could taste thick, semi-unstructured, tannins. This wine could use another year in the bottle to mellow out on the ‘chunky’ feel of the tannins. It carries flavors of blueberry, clove, and young cherry but the final flavor I am left with is the harsh ending of the tannins. 86 points
