Community Tasting Note

  • Jon Bjork wrote:

    February 16, 2010 - A very satisfying assortment of gobs of creamy vanilla, jammy blueberry and cherry pie baking over an open fire of resinous wood with some dried fig and black olives thrown in. This is a delicious and decadent fruit bomb with a nice balance of flavors introduced by a cascade of 15.5% alcohol legs kicking down the glass. Despite the combustible fuel, the wine is smooth without the expected burn. There is some almost overdone sweetness on the finish along with cherry and orange peel, but all in all, this wine goes down easily. We tasted it close to bottling and it would benefit from a bit of complexing age.
