Community Tasting Notes (62) Avg Score: 91 points

  • No notes, but very nice with red fruits and spice, medium body, smooth/soft mouthfeel and great balance. Totally seamless and easy to drink. Will not score, but would be in the 91-93 range.

  • Earthy mushroom aromas upon opening mostly fade to reveal cherry, strawberry, fresh herbs and balsa wood. Lightish-medium body featuring cherry and tart wild strawberry, with a mid palate fully enveloped by spices leading into a dusty, tart red fruited finish. Fine tannins and a juicy acid presence round everything out quite nicely. Continues to show very well, but no rush here.

  • Nose started dusty and with dried red fruit but turned into bitter cherry after about an hour. Similar transformation with the flavors which started full, rich and fleshy, but turned dried out and bitter after some airtime. Texture was consistently lean and elegant with nice balance. Overall this wine seemed old and tired. Certainly not consistent with prior bottles which were all very good. I will not give this one a score as I hope it was simply an aberation.

  • Re-tasted tonight. No change from my previous note from July 2013. Fresh and vibrant. It's excellent.

  • Another great bottle - and a bit more elegant and feminine than prior bottles. Nice nose of light, bright, ripe red fruits - strawberry, rhubarb and cherry, along with spice, earth and smoke/dust. Medium bodied, somewhat lean, balanced, seamless, silky-smooth, and very long. This has big flavors, but is definitely not a typical Cali fruit bomb - much more burgundian in style. One of those rare wines that combines power and elegance.
