Community Tasting Note

    September 30, 2016 - Plenty of wines at Pine Lake Trout Club (Pine Lake Trout Club): Killer wine and my WOTN. Just gorgeous. This is everything California can do, but few actually do, with Grenache. Its ripe but not over ripe. Plenty of depth. It shows darker fruits as well as the traditional red fruits. The nose is deep and powerful with black cherries, black raspberries, smoke, soy, cedar and violets. On the palate, what an amazing texture. Soft but velvety yet powerful. The fruit is ripe but not cloying or too much. Great balance. So much verve. Of course still young but seems past its baby stages just waking up. Two decades left easily. So, why not 100. Probably just not the right environment. Too much food. Dark lighting. The bottle shared among 9 of us. Who cares? Just a real treat!
