Community Tasting Note

  • Troon wrote: 91 points

    August 20, 2017 - Opened this bottle to see if it's worth the continued price increases. The wine has been in my cellar since release. I decanted it for two hours. It took another hour to really open up. There are still a lot of tannins, and I believe the wine has a good 10 years left in it. I got red and black fruit on the nose. I thought there was blue fruit on the palate once it started showing life. The finish was medium. The wine is really good. I'm just torn on it compared to other wines available at $125 for the current release. I also have the 2013 and 2014.
