Community Tasting Note

    May 12, 2013 - An opaque dark colored wine with a ruby rim showing faint hints of bricking. Very aromatically complex showing hints plums, blackberries, black cherries, licorice, burnt earth, mushrooms, leather, smoke, cloves, cinnamon, and faint hints of vanilla. Dense and chewy on the palate revealing plums, black cherries, licorice on the attack, the midpalate has some depth with sour cherries coated in dark chocolate, espresso, and refreshing acidity. The finish is of moderate length filled with dark fruits, dusty tannins that are still quite prominent. This seems a bit flabby and disjointed at the moment, there is good fruit and focus though its slightly muted.
