Community Tasting Note

  • tooch wrote: 72 points

    January 23, 2013 - UGC Chicago (The Drake Hotel - Chicago, IL): Surprisingly, I was not a fan of this. Where were the smokey minerals? Where did all the Graves flavors and feel go? Dang...just a lot of heat and blackberries on the nose with vanilla, oak and black fruit on the palate. Big disappointment.

    9/8/14, 6:09 AM - giving 72 points for this wine is an insult to the winemaker and makes it difficult to get an accurate average score on Cellartracker
