Community Tasting Note

    July 31, 2012 - Nose: Currants, plums, tobacco leaf, leather, and eucalyptus. Fragrant, dense, very nicely fruited, and graceful. Palate: Ripe plums and currants hit you right away on the attack. Good acidity and smooth tannins show up on the mid-palate then give way to to more ripe and sweet currants on the finish.

    This is a stunning example of a left-bank wine, nevermind that it's from a lesser vintage. Mature, smooth, excellent balance and structure, plenty of sweet fruit... delicious.
