Community Tasting Note

    June 3, 2007 - Dark amber, clear noties of oxidzed, smokey, burnt butterscotch. It somehow seemed to improved after two hours, the burnt character seemed to have grown less severe. Still, it’s a intensly strong and badly over the hill chard. Even though, I found something appealing in it after three hours – but I’d say this wine resembles little of the clean chard character that it did early in it’s life. A bad example? Given that it's my last bottle, I'll never know.
