Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr wrote: 93 points

    April 20, 2012 - On day 2. Nose: Musk, baking spices, orange marmalade, noticeable vanilla and oak spice action. Good core of stewed raspberry & black/blueberry fruit on the nose. Big and fragrant but not without noticeable oak creaminess to it. Some may not like that. Palate: Dark, tart red berry attack showing mostly raspberries and cherries. Good acidity off the bat is carried with the fruit through the mid-palate to finish, with the acidity kicking up a notch in the middle. Musk, violets, tart cherry, baking spices on the finish.

    Heavy oak elements but it works well as the dense fruit material and abundant acidity work in concert. Let me not forget to mention that the fruit shows ample sweetness. Dense, fragrant, sweet, texturally pleasing. Delicious and eminently drinkable now.
