Community Tasting Notes (1)

  • Off the list at Bern's. After we'd ordered (and consumed) some Chinon from '81, Gattinara from '69 and Petite Sirah from '74, all of which were quite good, I ordered this. I thought there was a fair chance it could be on the downhill slide, but an equally fair chance it was ready to go. However, t it wasn't even ready yet. Maybe in 5 years, or now, with a 2 hour decant. Much more tannic than I was expecting. Great acids, but the fruit was in a deep, deep sleep. Good now, with the potential to be very good. Especially so at just $55 on the list.
