Community Tasting Notes 8

November 28, 2013 - Really should have waited on this one. Still tight but the power and potential are there.
August 9, 2013 - Knew from pouring into the decanter that this bottle was going to be rocking the black olive.
Olives meats and cherries. Looks like these are ready now.
January 5, 2013 - Curiously unloved the first day open. And then on day two much more loved. I think it might have been the crowd or food. But in any case, still works it out on day two!

December 20, 2012 - Dark ruby hue, intense dark fruit, spicy-- candidly a little different tasting (not flawed). Rustic wine with a lot of character. Mixed reviews at the table.

August 20, 2012 - Floral, smoke and meat flavors. Polished tannins. Nice finish. Not a big fruit type Syrah.
