Community Tasting Notes 8

March 6, 2016 - Drinking well after 1 hour decant. Black fruit with a spicy herbaceous finish. I would agree with prior reviewer that identified basil. Tanin structure remains intact which suguests this wine can be enjoyed over the next few years.

May 11, 2014 - Decanted 1 hour. Didn't show well. Green and harsh, rough around the edges. Vinturi helped a little (always a last resort for me). Disappointing.

July 25, 2013 - Paired very well with a pasta dish featuring fresh basil, tomatoes and thinly sliced garlic combined with olive oil. Gave it plenty of time to open. Would love to have a few more bottles.

May 24, 2013 - nose: fig, black berries, black cherries, oak, light soy sauce. Taste: pork sausage, beef jerky sort of meaty taste. Plum, fig, raspberry. Some cherry drop in the end. I also get some warm spices. Dry and mid-full body and big flavor profile. Almost a little sweet bbq sauce going on? Get hint of basil. I find this to be enjoyable and interesting. Good tannin and light toasted oak. Maybe a hint of heat but perhaps it needs more air. Needs air.

May 22, 2013 - Modern meets rustic - a nice mix of sheen and garrigue/earth. Definitely the type of wine that a wide variety of wine drinkers and lovers can enjoy. Give it some air for maximum enjoyment. Interested to see if the savory notes develop over the next few years.
