Community Tasting Notes 75

    September 6, 2017 - Deep dark center, red rim with some signs of age.
    Sweet, blackcurrant, raspberry liquor, brambles, good fruit.
    Smooth, sweet, rich, blackberries, black cherries, some acidity, some tannin, good length of mature black fruit.
    Enjoyable but an overblown style, great fruit but very extracted, hides the alcohol well (15.2%), probably best as a dinner party wine.

    June 14, 2017 - This wine is in prime time. Delicious Merlot with loads of fruit and secondary flavors.

    June 10, 2017 - A ripe and thick Merlot that should be drunk now. Dark red in color, full in body, nose of prunes, graphite, and menthol. Tastes of plum, leather, raisin, and rosemary, with a soft and somewhat brief finish. 15.2% alcohol. I preferred the 2005 far more at its 10-year mark, and the raisiny profile and lack of acidity make me suspect this is on the downward slope. Make sure to give it an hour or so of air, which freshens up the wine a bit. Blend of 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    March 4, 2017 - Tasted completely blind. Obviously Merlot, obviously New World. Guessed 10 year-old Californian. At first, this was very Concord-grapey which didn't leave me hugely enthusiastic. But get it into the glass, and it's a different beast; ripe, plummy Merlot, a touch of clay, a bit of flowers, not particularly hot in the mouth. I liked this and it went beautifully with the pork - certainly a wine for the table.
