Community Tasting Note

  • Eric wrote: 85 points

    April 7, 2007 - Dumbfounded by Dominus (Kirkland, WA): Pickle-barrel nose. Root beer, brett, spicy, forest floor. Definitely near the end of its life. Austere. Fruit is all dried up. Faint almond notes on the finish. Nose is better than the palate.

    At that age, there are no great wines, only great bottles. For whatever reason, very few of the wines showed well at that tasting. Keep in mind also that this was 6.5 years ago.
