Community Tasting Notes (60) Avg Score: 91.0 points

  • 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.

  • Medium dark red color. PNP, followed 2 glasses over 4 hours. This took some time opening up after coming out from cellar temp. But gradually the wine I remember emerged and showed its colors. The nose has nice earth, ripe cherry and strawberry fruit, subtle pine boughs, vanilla, smoke and spices. The palate is medium bodied with a really nice spice mix, soft but defined, nice acid, earth and minerals with the cherry and strawberry fruits, and a bit of underbrush on the medium plus finish. My wife liked it, but a bit less than me putting it around 90+pts. I found it a bit more compelling and interesting. Definitely a wine that benefits from some air, this should drink well for 5-8 years. 91 to 92pts.

  • Pop and pour and served with food (sausage and white beans, fettuccine in a zucchini and prosciutto sauce, and a green salad...just in case you were wondering).
    Good dark purple color. Nose is black cherry and a little herb element.
    Flavor of ripe black cherries with a side note of earthy herb notes, reminding me that this was 30 percent whole cluster. Rich finish with only the lightest hint of heat (surprising as this was 13.5 % qbv). Tastes good.
