TN: Forlorn-Hope Fraufreluches GWT '10....(short/boring)

#1 Post by TomHill » September 2nd, 2020, 5:19 pm

Had this last night w/ my BLT:
1. Forlorn-Hope TheFraufreluches GWT Adam&Eve Vnyd/RRV (14.3%; 34 cs) SuisunVlly 2010: Rather amber/burnished bronze color; fairly strong GWT/hair-oil/spicy/floral bit pencilly/cigar box modest phenolic/skin-contact/resiny bit Radikon-like rather complex nose; fairly tart/tangy fairly resiny/phenolic/skin-contact lightly tannic some GWT/hair oil/spicy slight earthy complex flavor w/ light austere tannins; very long/lingering some tangy/tannic/metallic some phenolic/skin-contact/resiny light GWT/hair oil/spicy complex finish w/ light tannins; the phenolic character has subsided greatly and the GWT fruit has come to the forefront; a really lovely skin-contact white that has matured very nicely and can probably get better w/ more age; reminds a lot of an older Radikon; beautiful complex white.
A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. This was made as a skin-contact white. Upon release it was strongly phenolic/tannic/austere and not much pleasure to drink. Since then, the phenolic character as subsided considerably and the GWT aromatics have come out.
