Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 86.3 points

  • Dark wild berry, flowers, camphor and game, a touch of rubbery asphalt. Gamy mouthful of blackberry, tar. The finish is bright, floral, showing asphalt and a little metallic. Interesting but I do not appreciate the reductive characteristics.

  • Popped and poured. Started nice with a strong black olive note combined with deep, dark berry. After an hour or so a skunky, floral aroma emerged along with a pleasing mineral edge. Unfortunately a tart, rubbery flavor also developed, particularly on the finish. I suspect that 3-4 hours of decanting may reveal a good wine.
