Community Tasting Note

  • Motz wrote: 95 points

    June 1, 2013 - Possibly the best Merlot bottling I have ever tasted that doesn't say Chateau Pavie on the label. Drinks like a high end right bank Bordeaux, but with Tuscan terroir. Stunning juice! Red fruits and Mediterranean cooking spices complement a terroir driven nose and palate. Fine, Rutherford dust-like minerality delivers a complete mouthfeel. The wine shows great balance, wonderful subtelties, and countless layers. Discreet, yet powerful! Perfect oak treatment. Will hold for a good while. 94-95.

I only found one bottle for $17.50 but would have bought a case if I could have. Even at retail price it's a crazy steal. Anyways, I drank it over two days and it was better on the second day. Thank you for the kind words.
