Community Tasting Notes 17

June 3, 2016 - A layered and complex Cabernet on the savory end of the Napa spectrum. Inky purple in color, full in body, nose of charcoal and blackberry. Dense tastes of black cherry, plum, mocha, olives, and cedar. 14.9% alcohol. Blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot. Gets softer with air, though still quite dense.

August 31, 2015 - This has resolved beautifully. Tannins are fully integrated and silky. Great richness and depth but still maintains an underlying freshness.

February 7, 2015 - Tannic. Cabernet franc apparent. Nice aromatics of dark fruit, cassis, licorice. Nice Oakville wine. Slight green peppery character.
