Community Tasting Notes 1

    June 4, 2004 - ($46) Napa-Noma Trip: 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc. Good color - slightly more translucent than the cabernet with a swirl of tawny. Herbs, light creosote, tobacco, weeds. Weedy complexity in the midpalate. Dry herbs. Nice red fruit. Pretty interesting and showing better complexity than the Cabernet of the same vintage.

    (Shafer Vineyards Merlot (Napa Valley)) A good, mature colour, yet not giving too much on the nose. Full, round and richly textured on the palate, with some sweet raspberry fruit. Still has some tannin, but overall it's quite soft, giving and almost voluptuous. Very easy to drink, and a great length.
