Community Tasting Notes (4) Avg Score: 92.4 points

  • A textbook Cypher wine in structure, but even more amped. Enormous nose of deep, dark cherry and cassis, plus oak and vanilla. The palate is at least as massive, oozing with ripe dark fruit, but beautifully balanced by a core of raging, tingling acidity. Tannins are refined and smooth, but dominant. Lots of cherry on the finish, and occasional rushes of chocolate-covered espresso beans. A monster, but a delicious monster with grace and sophistication.

  • Deep, dark, and opaque with an inky purple color. Showing high viscosity and bright reflections.
    On the nose deep concentrated aromas of roasted plum, cassis, and dark cherry that are seasoned with spice, toast, vanilla, cedar, toffee and mocha. Aromas are moderate + with a touch of heat even after decant.
    Whoa... the palate offers up dense, super-ripe fruit and a supple mouthfeel. Flavors of fig, plum, dark cherry reduction, cassis, toffee, toast, mocha, flowers, and spice are bold. Acidity and tannin levels are both moderate, the mid palate density is moderate and the finish is moderate+ in intensity and length with dark berry and espresso flavors. Needs time for all the components to come together a little more harmoniously, as of now slightly disjointed.

  • This was banging. This was big bold and chewy. Very nice long finish. From the first sip this got better and better. I have on my list to get more later. this was outstanding. I did have it with a steak but very memorable

  • Very big complex wine. We decanted this wine before serving which enhanced its flavor. Enjoyed from first to last sip.
