Community Tasting Notes (average 88.5 pts. and median of 88 pts. in 5 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Appreciative on 12/8/2009: The overall comment from people that tried it was "Wow, that's soft." Still showing so nicely. Flavors are well integrated. Very smooth on finish. (1011 views)
 Tasted by Appreciative on 3/4/2009: Enjoyed the aromas and richness. Did not pick up any off aromas or flavors and delighted in it more than last year's bottle. (1097 views)
 Tasted by Appreciative on 2/17/2008: Aromas of blackberry, black currant, eucalyptus, mushroom, and earth. A little endeared by some dankness and funk. Beautiful color. Flavor ends rather abruptly. The tannins and the alcohol keep on the front and upper palate. (1164 views)
 Tasted by Mark on 1/23/2008 & rated 87 points: This example is less impressive than my previous tasting in 1996. No tasting notes recorded, and consumed over two nights, it remained consistent from night to night. Not as vibrant fruit, shorter finish. This is a mature wine that should be consumed. (1289 views)
 Tasted by Mark on 12/9/2006 & rated 90 points: I have to say, I opened this wine with little expectations, but was very pleasantly surprised. Although I have no tasting notes, I recall looking at the bottling and wondering if it was a Syrah in stead. This is good and drinking great right now. (1489 views)
