Community Tasting Note

    April 9, 2010 - On the nose - wet cement gives away to subtle dark fruits, burnt toffee, and tobacco.
    Solid mouthfeel, thought definitely past prime. It's still got some red fruit there, and I'd call it a medium body at best. Many of the nuances are pretty soft, yet I'm still getting a tartness... and notes more akin to a Syrah.
    For a wine in this price range I'd say it's held up amazingly well. This is the fourth bottle I've tried over the last 2 months (it's spring cellar cleaning).
    This time tried alone, with veggie fried rice, and an assortment of mild cheddar. Best served around 70 degrees.... needs a bit of a chill.
    If you've got'em, drink'em.
