Community Tasting Note

    June 25, 2013 - A brooding dark wine with a ink black core and youthful ruby red rims, you can sense this is a big wine by the charming aromas that jump form the glass. The initial aromas show candied cherries, raspberries, plums, currants, licorice, cedar, dried flowers, eucalyptus, hints of well integrated sweet vanilla, crushed stones, and Indian spices. It caresses the palate with its smooth texture while revealing gobs of dark cherries, plums, blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate, followed by great acidity on the mid palate with small hints of licorice. A full bodied wine with a moderate to long lasting finish, silky well integrated tannins, filled with dark fruits, currants, cloves, anise, cinnamon, and some sweet vanilla. While the fruit flavors are clean, focused, and take a predominate role, the wine still manages to keep a balance making it quite drinkable.
