Community Tasting Note
December 31, 2012 - Decanted for two hours before tasting; at the two hour mark this was closed and backwards, with very little fruit coming forward. Four hours after decanting this still has some time to go before coming into its own. Shows good structure, dark fruit is beginning to become noticeable, but its like a pimply-faced teenager that needs more time to see if it grows into its frame. While I didn't include a community rating, I'd say its 90 now with room to grow. Won't retaste until 2016+. Hope this was an off-bottle or that I'm better impressed in the future.
Day 2 - Reserved and gassed-off 1/3 of the bottle. Day two was no different, may have been even more backward. Weird.1 person found this helpful 4,489 views
