Community Tasting Note

    March 23, 2012 - Nose: Cherries, big pencil lead, tobacco leaf, eucalyptus, licorice, green/olive element. Blind, I would have guessed right bank Bordeaux. Palate: Sweet currants, cherries, pencil lead, crushed gravel on the attack. Lively tannins appear on the mid-palate along with ample acidity and the pencil lead still riding right along through to the finish. Dusty tannins, toasty cedar, currants linger on the finish.

    This is a superbly structured wine with good balance and good fruit. I could see some finding it to be a bit angular but this would easily be remedied with extended cellar time to let the oak and tannins integrate. 5+ years and this will stand in nicely as a Bordeaux clone, sangiovese be damned.
