Community Tasting Note

  • BuzzzzOff Does not like this wine: 70 points

    February 20, 2017 - Big expectations, bigger failure. Too much alcohol, over-oaked, tooty-fruity, sticky tannins (really!?). Simply sad...

Did you give it a nice long decant? I found that straight out of the bottle it is pretty unapproachable, but for me it did soften appreciably with plenty of air time. I'm putting my remaining bottles away for a good while hoping for a miracle. I hope you don't have too many to deal with.

    Cheers,
    DB
