Community Tasting Note

    November 6, 2016 - Man, this was great! Bought this years ago and will look to buy more. Still on the young side but not shut down at all. Cigar / dark fruit / smoke / wet cement on the nose. Full bodied on the palate with a little green coming through (but not in a bad way at all.) Tannins very prevalent on the finish but not harsh at all. Acidity on point. Makes for a very well made and well -balanced wine. This easily has 10 years life left on it. Still feels young and primary almost but not overly so. In a great spot and will be for a long time.
