Community Tasting Note

  • Wine-Strategies Likes this wine:

    November 30, 2013 - I had been worried the tannins might not be resolved enough to fully enjoy this, but with 2 hours in decanter (fair amount of chunky sediment, too), this was completely ready. Explosive nose of bright, red and black fruits, a powerful spice component, and damp earthen notes. The flavors largely follow the nose, but for me, the most enjoyable thing here is that this is not a one-trick pony (e.g. cherry or vanilla, you choose). A good toward very good amount of complexity, purity. In retrospect, this could have been a PnP, and showed as well or better. Tertiary development is still some years away. The abv is fully resolved. 14,9% abv, drink thru 2018
