Community Tasting Note

  • Sycamore wrote: 80 points

    April 1, 2016 - Oh, my -- the distress right now. Have 10 more these (bought a case blind years ago after loving the '01), but this, tonight, sucks. It sucks. Its as if the '01 of the mind's eye was turned into stewed prunes. That's what this is: over-wrought, overdone, fruity badness. Plain and simple. A great vintage handled wrongly, maybe. All of that said, this note seems to go against the grain here, so maybe the bottle is off (or the taster is); will come back in 6 months and try again....
