WN: Harrington Corvina Lodi '16...(short/boring)

#1 Post by TomHill »

Tried this last night from my Library stash from Bryan:
1. Harrington Corvina HeirloomRanch/MokolumneRiver/Lodi (13.0%) 2016: Very pale rose/orange color; quite aromatic cranberry/cherry/strawberry light Lodi/earthy/mushroomy quite pretty nose; fairly tart/tangy/bracing light cranberry/strawberry/cherry bit Lodi/earthy rather wirey/nervy flavor w/ light rather bitey tannins; long quite tart/tangy/bit metallic bright cranberry/strawberry bit Lodi/earthy finish w/ light brisk tannins; a rather nervy bit lean/eviscerated brat of a wine; OK w/ food but not fun to taste; tannins & acids are pretty austere/severe; not sure there's much potential for development.

A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Corvina is, of course, the primary grape in Valpolicella. This wine has no similarity whatsoever to Valpolicella. I liked the aromatics of this wine quite a lot, but it was pretty severe on the palate.
