Community Tasting Notes 12

    November 26, 2016 - Notes of cedar, black fruit and spice. Leather and dark fruit flavors on the palate. Fully-integrated and ready. Develops a terrific floral overtones featuring lavender and violets. On the palate the fruit turns toward the red end of the spectrum. 91-92 pts.

    I had pulled this for the Sunday group vertical and didn't open it then so thought I'd serve it double blind to the Saturday group (two couples including Domino and I overlap). The four of us agreed that this showed very well and would have finished in the top half of the Sunday group voting.

    December 31, 2010 - Fleshy, full bodied, rich with dark fruits, mocha, and held together with almost fully resolved tannins. Smooth and easy to drink. -JBL

    April 14, 2010 - nose - gorgeous nose of dark cherry, maple, and toasty oak
    mouth - dark fruit, black cherry, with good minerality, but narrow on the midpalate (as opposed to expansive). Still with some tannins on the finish. I'm hard pressed to see any reason to hold my last bottle any longer.
