Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 91 points

    March 16, 2012 - Nose: Ripe, fleshy plums, mint, vanilla, currants, cedar box. Palate: Rich, sweet, currants, wild berry, smoke, black pepper on the attack. Big tannins, licorice, vanilla on the mid-palate. Creamy vanilla and plums linger on the finish. Even 60+ seconds later, vanilla and cedar notes are detectable on the palate.

    Despite the creamy vanilla oak treatment, this wine's other elements show great focus, texture, and above all, sweet, delicious fruit. The tannins are pretty lively now and could use time to integrate, but with little acidity to balance things out, this is a wine to drink young as I can see this being a little flabby and syrupy once the tannins have receded. Fans of Napa cab should definitely check this bottling out though, particularly given its price point.
