Community Tasting Note

    November 19, 2016 - Out with friends (Scarecrow, Jonata, 7 Stones, Kutch, Rhys, Baumard) (University Circle): This bottle had been opened for 27 hours and allowed to breather prior to drinking. In my biased opinion, this is our best wine yet. I know the WA gave the Persona 96 points, but I love this wine (it still got a 95). It needs time or air. It is mostly Halcon fruit which takes a long time to develop. A bit riper than most Halcon fruit wine I think, yet this is still about cool climate Syrah. I have only had this wine a couple of times, so I am still figuring it out. I would hold for a while or maybe let it slow ox for 72 hours if you can.

I have been asked to many times and after talking with Eric, it appears that it makes some sense as long as I don't assign points and make it clear. Our website technology is not the best and CT offers the opportunity to give anyone interested some guidance on the wines. BTW, lest you think that is all I post, there are over 6,000 notes on CT posted by me. I post on probably 90% of the wines I drink and only a small fraction are SonkinCellars. In this case, it was part of an evening out with a lot of wines all included in one wine story. I hope that is clear and thanks for asking.
