Community Tasting Note

  • ikkaariainen wrote: 88 points

    October 29, 2016 - Agree with Schwarzer Hund down below - not techically off in any way and still quite drinkable but almost all the fruit is gone leaving acid and some interesting secondary and tertiary flavors - pretty far over the hill and given how really good the Paloma merlots generally are at this point of maturation this wine is a mere shadow of it's former self. Still paired pretty reasonably with steak but lacked the anticipated punch - the food actually improved the wine some. Hard to recommend this wine at this point - probably rated 90 - 91 even 2-3 years ago. Do not wait to drink up further holdings - rapidly becoming more of a cooking then drinking wine.
