Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 88 points

    January 26, 2012 - Nose: Currants, a bit of toasty oak, dark chocolate, menthol, hint of tobacco leaf. Palate: Currants and tart plums on the attack. Grippy tannins and anise show up on the mid-palate then give way to ripe currants, toasty oak, and vanilla on a medium length finish.

    Right after opening, this wine was a bit jagged but some hours later it has settled in and shows pretty good balance. The oak influence is certainly noticeable and manifests itself with spice notes and definite creaminess, which I could do without from a Bordeaux. Despite this, the fruit weight is quite good... bright and acidic with good, ripe tannins. These elements should come together nicely in 2-3 years, but you could do worse than drink this now. 88 today with the potential to add 1-2 points and at $20, I recommend checking it out.
