Community Tasting Note

  • Sauvyfan Likes this wine: 88 points

    March 26, 2013 - Nearly four hour decant to get anything on the nose. Black fruits begrudgingly emerged but so did the alcohol. Supple texture, very drinkable, long finish, uninteresting. My first shipment is not off to a great start. $45?, really. Makes Januik @ 30 look good.

    Cheers!
