79 Points

Friday, December 14, 2012 - Friday Wine Night 12/14: After seeing the other TNs, we had to try this...and are pretty much in agreement.

I've been on the Schrader flagship list since '06, and I've bought DD over the years because in the past I've enjoyed them. But this Amber Knolls is just blah, and after having the Double Diamond Bomber X vertical last week, I think I have a decent baseline; this one just doesn't have anything to it. I'm a bit disappointed as well. My reaction to this is "Meh, it's wine", which is my definition of a 79.

I get grape, and others who tried it noted peaches and nectarines, but I'm having trouble finding much else. This hits the palate and just trails off.......where is the rest of this wine? Even the slight tannins are blah...
