Community Tasting Notes 84
August 14, 2014 - For $40ish bucks, this wine over delivers. At 7yrs old, this wine is bringing it's A game. Supple, sexy, racy - and the dark hanging fruits are there, not much age showing so it's really youthful. We just had the 09 Insignia and this wine was a few steps behind, but showing phenomenally well. A steal. More bottles await but they won't last.2 people found this helpful Comment

July 27, 2014 - 375ml note after 1 hr decant. Good combination of wood and fruit, maybe a tiny bit hot. Rich, full, luscious fruit, velvety smooth, but with a swish shows good tannin structure and acid remain. From a great vintage this doesn't disappoint.1 person found this helpful Comments (1)

July 5, 2014 - Judith's Over the Hill and Under the Weather Event (Judith's House): Deep purple red color. PNP, 3oz pour over 80 minutes. Nose is quite good with layered cassis, dark berries, spice, cedar. The palate is dense and full bodied, nice tannin and lovely black fruits of currants and berries, cedar, spice. Medium plus finish. Excellent.
June 2, 2014 - Decanted for 1 hr. Fairly forgetable wine with a short finish. Tannins are still a little grippy.
