Community Tasting Note

  • red freddy Likes this wine: 91 points

    June 8, 2023 - Received a partial bottle from my Oenophile neighbor.
    14.5% abv
    57% Cabernet Sauvignon; 43% Shiraz

    Both spouse and I had a half glass with dinner. Deep opaque Purple in the glass. Prominent nose of Cherry, Blackberry & Cassis. Smooth on the palate; Big, Bold and Lush with notes of graphite (pencil lead) and tobacco. Tannins come to the fore, leaving a fuzzy feeling on the tooth, but there is some lingering sense of harshness. Ample acidity for a pleasantly tart, lingering finish.
    As noted by some in prior tasting notes, Good now, but should be Great with additional cellaring.
