The rewards and frustrations of home winemaking

Bahia Belle Blend Tasting Note

Although this blend is still very young — only about 2 months in the bottle! — I really wanted to try it out.  Decanted very briefly. Very sharp, acidic nose. Hint of raspberry and blackberry with spice. Very clear, garnet-purple in color. Very vegetal flavors of green pepper, raspberry, plum, and oak. After about an hour of decanting, acidity mellowed out and got flavors of milk chocolate and framboise.  Nicely integrated, although very sharp, definitely young. Will be very nice someday!
