Community Tasting Note

  • MissK Likes this wine: 89 points

    February 9, 2015 - Aroma: embers of smoked teak or oak. The nose reminds of of walking into a room built with fine wood in some cabin. Hints of blueberry and bell pepper. Slight band aid (after just opening). Best to let the glass decant for a bit longer.
    Taste of just opened pour: Definitely spicy and peppery (bell pepper and jalapeno). Tight tannins but pleasant. Oily leather on the nose and palate. Elegant, like a really great leather handbag. Great wine to enjoy before and during your meal of pepper steak and polenta or simple tarragon garlic mashed potatoes (without any sauce). For seafood, a hearty firm fish like swordfish steak with a sweet sauce or chutney like mango chutney or a nice raspberry cream sauce with poppy seeds. Any pasta noodle with simple tomato sauce would be perfect as well (top with basil pesto and some basil leaves for garnish). Enjoy!
