Community Tasting Note

    January 1, 2013 - Really nice on day one and even better on day two. Straightforward palate of black currant, sweet green herb, very Napa. Seamless, it is cool and very well balanced with still plenty of tannin in the finish. On day two this is much better. The sweetness of the green herb is more savory and it is even smoother and well rounded. Some tertiary notes barely starting to peek out. Still quite primary, but has lost the fresh berry notes from last year. I think this is drinking fabulously right now, but could definitely age a bit more and hopefully gain some complexity if some tertiary notes shine through. Certainly seems that it is well built enough to do just that. My last bottle though. 93+?
