Community Tasting Note

    March 25, 2014 - My least favorite of the Lupicaias. There's plenty of ripe red and dark fruit here tinged with herbal and cedary notes, but there's a slightly roasted, overripe quality to the aromatics that I found offputting. It doesn't show the overripeness on the palate though; there's a polished texture with fine grained tannins and good acidity, but it doesn't have the finesse of the other wines in this flight.
