Community Tasting Note

  • fingers Likes this wine: 92 points

    April 15, 2014 - This didn't need much coaxing to come out and was singing after only 15 minutes open. Very dark maroon color with a brilliant shine, no sediment and clear, average legs. Profound cassis and raspberry compote, bramble, light smoke, dried meat, fig, and flowers on the nose. As powerful as the bouquet is, the palate dances gracefully in the mouth with a tinge of acidity and soft tannins that leaves any bombastic thoughts behind. This restraint is why I still love McPrice wines and have dropped from the Herman Story list. I find the more elegant approach delivers a more interesting wine. Rich, but not sweet. Voluptuous, but not heavy. And after all that to contemplate, there are nice earthy elements to expose some Larner distinction. No impression that it will improve - drink at will. 5+12+17+8 = 92
