Community Tasting Note

  • 458jeff Likes this wine: 96 points

    March 15, 2015 - What a change. I first tried this wine and thought it was a 90. At times I didn't really like it as it seemed too sweet, somewhat syrupy, and synthetic. Not thrilled. So after months of avoiding it I tried it again. Suddenly, it's not the same wine. It has more depth, complexity, balance and the over-powering sweetness is gone. I did not trust myself as the transformation seemed too great. Well, I had a second bottle a week later and felt the same way. I strongly recommend retasting this wine as I believe you will likely be astonished. I just ordered two additional cases. This wine is now a screaming bargain. Will it get even better?

    3/20/15, 9:00 PM - Well... I opened a third bottle and it was not as good as the prior two. A day later it tasted better but still not quite as good as my prior two bottles. I presume this wine is just starting to turn in a good way. I will continue to try it every couple of months. I m hopeful based on the two great bottles I enjoyed.
