Community Tasting Note

    January 14, 2017 - Nose: Tobacco leaf, eucalyptus, hints of tar, bright red fruit, herbaceous notes. Palate: On the attack, cranberry tartness, bright cherries, along with hints of dark, dusty cassis. An interesting juxtaposition of fruit types. Fairly muted mid-palate, not revealing anything new but some detectable pencil lead and very, very faint hints of ripe cassis. Anise and tar linger on the incredibly long finish.

    Texturally bereft, this came off as flat at the outset and produced no subsequent tannic structure. Time and air revealed some very elegant elements that ultimately made this a more subtle and cerebral drink. Did I enjoy the 2012 Leonetti that was sitting next to it more? Definitely. But this was eminently enjoyable.
