Community Tasting Note

  • gunpwdr Likes this wine: 92 points

    December 9, 2012 - Nose: Loads and loads of pencil lead along with tobacco leaf, mulberry, currants, and hints of eucalyptus. Palate: Bright, brambly, ripe berries, and pencil lead on the attack. Big, drying tannins join big, juicy acidity on the mid-palate. Notes of pencil lead, herbs, and mulberry linger on the finish.

    Young with big, sweet, ripe fruit but equally big, drying tannins. Drinkable now if you like big, structural beasts and primary fruit. The good news is that the fruit, tannins, and acidity are present in roughly equal amounts but do need time to integrate. Definitely worth checking out at ~$28.
