Community Tasting Note

    November 15, 2014 - I was surprised at the amount of oak on this. yes, there's minerality, yes there's reasonable acidity; but with this much oak, it'd need more of each. The oak does, however, lend a sense of broadness to the fruit such that this wine is more a complete meal than "just" a food-wine. I'm glad I tried it - but now I just don't know what to do with bottle #2 ...
