Community Tasting Notes 24

    February 19, 2016 - Deep ruby color turning violet at the rim with a thin transparent edge. The bouquet is profusely perfumed with potpourri, dried meat, red and dark berries, and scorched cedar. The palate is full-bodied, light on its feet with an attractive gripping texture coming from the wood. Flavors of red cherry, raspberry, red licorice, smoke, cowhide leather, clove, and black peppercorns. Balanced, meaty, sumptuous. Drink now until 2025. 92+

    January 29, 2016 - The Cabernet Franc and Merlot added a nice soft touch to this inky purple wine that really softened with standing. Whilst this was a very nice wine, at $60 a bottle I could find much better in Australia for the same price.

    January 29, 2016 - One of my sleepers of the vintage. I really love the savory earthy aromatics. Love the firmness, structure and dryness. Still so young. Getting more at $28/bottle...wow!

    December 2, 2015 - I agree with other tasters that this is very young. Good nose of dark fruits, currant and chocolate. Huge gripping tannins on the tongue with a medium finish. The potential is there for this wine to be an easy few points higher. I will try again in at least 3-5 years.

    July 24, 2015 - Very young at this point. Needed at least 2 hours of breathing to start showing its potential. Likely to be very good in a few years; only time will tell.
