Community Tasting Note

  • bonedoc wrote: 92 points

    October 18, 2017 - Well made, balanced, concentrated wine. But, 99 PT’s from Jeb is just silly - this wine is nowhere near 99 and reduces my confidence in his ratings.

    10/18/17, 2:01 PM - funny you should ask... i met Eric Jensen (the owner/winemaker) about 3 years ago and he told me that he doesn't think wine should be aged bc it doesn't get better with time. i disagree (mostly) with that comment, but it makes me wonder if he is making wines that are intended for the short term rather than aging. for this wine, i decanted and drank over a few hours and i thought it was "ready" bc of the decant, although i would say it was early in it's drinking window - to my palate i would drink over the next 5 years or so.
