Community Tasting Note

  • Giggs wrote: (93 points)

    May 26, 2013 - Memorial Day Cabin Dinner; 5/25/2013-5/26/2013 (Cleveland, GA): Decanted briefly, this actual improved in the 30 minutes in the decanter from first glass to second. Tart red cherry and grenadine nose, bright acid, wet leaves on the nose. Palate has salty tobacco leaf, wild red berry/cranberry, slightly astringent, not as much depth to the fruit, which is tilted a bit too much toward the tannic cherry/plum skin rather than juicy fruit. This is mature--no reason not to drink immediately.
