Community Tasting Note

    November 17, 2014 - Slow ox, 2 hour decant, singing, velvety tannins, but the tannins came on with more air. A touch of heat as it warmed up, but I expect this to be spectacular in a few years.

    Just made the Schrader Wine list. Bought a six pack with two bottles of this wine. I hate opening a bottle and it turns out tannic. If I would open thus wine at the beginning of 2017 do you think that would be ok?

It is just a bit one dimensional, its more about texture at this point. But something tells me this will do very well. However I do not have it pegged as a long term ager.
