Community Tasting Notes 22

    February 24, 2016 - Dark rust red color with limited thinning at the rim. Aromas of red berries, cedar, vanilla and a hint of licorice. Palate is red and blueberry fruited with cedar, tar, and a bit of walnut. Tannins emerge on the medium-long finish. This is showing more structure than the last bottle from fading memory, but still a wine I would consider to be drinking in its prime window for my tastes. Drink.

    January 17, 2015 - Still on the fence on this one. Less tannic than previous bottles, but a bit cloying

    July 6, 2014 - ripe voluptuous nose of cassis and mint, on the mouth instead very tannic with drying finish (wood?), and cherries in alcohol. wait fr the tannins or too late for the fruit? but drank half a bottle so it cannot have been that bad :-)

    June 30, 2013 - Medium-dark smoky red color with limited transparency. Aromas of sweet earth, red berries, currants, and vanilla. Palate shows sweet red fruit, plum, currant, blackberry, and a hint of vanilla that carries into a medium finish. This is well integrated and shows the value of cellaring wine. Great showing, but not profound. Drink at leisure.

    March 25, 2013 - Excellent "baby Monte Bello". Dark purple to the rim, heady aromas of spicy cedar and dark fruits, strikingly young. Tannins well integrated, really showing well. This has the structure to keep for many more years, very drinkable now.
