Community Tasting Note

  • Loren Sonkin wrote: 92 points

    September 17, 2012 - Another feeble effort in not drinking these wines until 5 years from vintage. I tend to drink these as I wait on the single vineyards. This is so much better than it was on release. Still young and primary. Inky purple in color. The nose is black raspberries, grilled meats, some leather and its big. On the palate, lots of fruit. Slight heat but goes away with air. Great black raspberry fruit. This is a big wine and its delicious.
