Community Tasting Notes 68

    September 14, 2014 - Dinner at Home (Fremont, CA): Deeper ruby-purple color with little to no bricking; nose is ripe, modern, some oak, notable vanilla spice, youthful; palate is full bodied, ripe, slight heat, smooth, some fruit, fades a bit toward the finish; medium length finish, very slightly drying. A ripe modern styled bordeaux that lacks typical bordeaux character, but still pleasant to drink. Not a bad buy at $25-30 if you like modern fruit-forward wines. 86-88

    July 25, 2014 - Consistent to last notes. Still a lot of wood. A typical crowd pleaser, but not a typical bordeaux. But overall not a bad wine. Should hold a couple more years.

    June 22, 2014 - Dark cherry, cassis, cedar. Quite yummy with a great nose. Dark berry pungent fruit in the nose, perhaps plums
