Community Tasting Note

  • Decanting fool Does not like this wine:

    December 3, 2014 - Very aggressive big style warm weather Syrah with gobs of fruit and beastly animal. I don't like it at all. While it's clearly well made and will satisfy many, and at a very attractive QPR, I just find it too much of everything, and lacking restraint and elegance. The mineral quality which syrah requires for balance is just missing, or buried deep underneath the fruit which is brash and top heavy.

    12/22/14, 2:58 PM - My gf and I were disappointed on a PNP. We each had one glass and then resealed and let it sit overnight. 24 hours later and it was much better. Still not my favorite by any stretch, but my gf actually liked it on day two. I'm going to let the rest sit, or at least give any I open soon a long decant.
