Community Tasting Note

  • jingram wrote: 93 points

    December 2, 2012 - Decanted 12hours, and consumed over 2 days. Day one blue and black fruit, nice minerlity and floral elements. The fruit is muted but underlying, really good acitdity. Day two (36 hours after opening) wow, the fruit is more prominent and everything has really come together. This is going to be killer stuff in a couple of years. My score reflects day two and the potential here. Another tasting note stated: Paul, the winemaker, left me these instructions for trying one of these early: "I recommend a double decant (into decanter back to bottle) and then 24hrs (without the cork) if drinking soon." If you have to drink one of these early definitely heed this advice it takes a little planning ahead but you will be rewarded.
