Community Tasting Notes 2

    January 6, 2013 - Medium-bodied, still has plenty of fruit left, but dominated by its pungent acidity. Sharply sour blue fruit up front, along with a notable gamey component. This is definitely a cool climate style. This probably wouldn't appeal to those who like the dark fruit bomb style of Syrah, but it worked for me. It has enough age that everything is integrated now, but I think it still has some time left.

    April 23, 2007 - gamy, tannins have softened to full integration, soft cherries, some smoke, overall good to drink now, can't say how much longer to hold, but not much I would estimate..
