Community Tasting Note

    November 11, 2013 - Decanted for about an hour. Very focused and distinct notes of cinnamon on the nose; I can't recall a clearer expression of cinnamon spice in a wine that I've had. On the palate, this is starting to soften texturally and it's not the tannic and structured wine that I expected. But, as the structure has yielded, it hasn't really developed that much complexities around the black fruit. Enjoyable, but I would hold another couple of years and see what emerges. Jon H brought this to dinner at Tutti's.

But, I don't think that the softening of texture means a decline. There is also room for development of secondary qualities to the palate. I'm hopeful for improvement rather than decline. Thanks for your question.

    After 6 of these in their premature state, we really don't know what to make of this wine. All the TN's seem to be describing different wines...
    So, we've resorted to waiting and are VERY curious as to what will jump out of the next btl. (We have 7 to go.)
