Community Tasting Note

  • Loren Sonkin wrote: 78 points

    April 19, 2016 - HdR Lunch #2 (Hospices du Rhone): This was a ripe hot mess and that is something I rarely say about a wine. It burned. Not sure if this was a proper bottle but everyone at the table seemed to taste spit and dump quickly.

If you do decide to pay us a visit, please let me know ahead of time, so I can make sure I'm there to answer any questions.

We tasted the MCV Black the first time we visited their tasting room and it was the primary reason we immediately joined their wine club. It sounds like the bottle brought to your luncheon was improperly stored or transported.
