Community Tasting Note

  • minndavid60 Likes this wine: 91 points

    January 8, 2017 - On the nose, progressive aromas of cigar box, campfire, spice and later on, some cool meatiness and game. The initial palate was tart cherry and a bit straightforward for the first couple of glasses, but by glass #3, this was picking up weight. Typical Lopez class and elegance. By the 4th glass, the palate also picked up some meatiness of its own. Finishing the bottle the next night, the red fruit had rounded more to strawberry. This still has upside potential. 91+
