Community Tasting Note

  • tooch wrote: 92 points

    December 19, 2012 - This wine wasn't pure, elegant and sexy when I opened it. I sat here drinking it, referencing Zach and Salil's notes thinking, "wtf is wrong with me...". Fastforward to hour 4 and things are starting to make sense. The aromas have become more floral and while the dark fruit is still there in spades, they're augmented by iodine and iron notes that are really nice. Palate has this wildness to it with gamey flavors that mingle with softer floral-driven notes that soften the masculine core. I see good things ahead for this wine.
