Community Tasting Note

    April 1, 2012 - Boo! That was the tannin monster that was just unleashed from the bottle. Opened this 3 hours before consuming and it still needed time to breathe. The strong tannins overwhelm the taste of this wine early on. But, with subsequent sips, you get dark cherries and dark chocolate on the mid palate and the finish. This is an excellent wine. Wished though I had read the CT reviews for this wine dating back to 2011 commenting about the early age of this wine (note to self: listen to my fellow CT reviewers). My next one won't be opened for 2+ years. I'm still glad I opened this one though to appreciate how it is evolving nicely.
