Community Tasting Note

  • csimm1161 wrote: 91 points

    November 25, 2017 - This score is based on Day 2. The first day it was a hot, alcohol-ridden, acidic mess. Day 2 it finally came around...a bit. Still, the booze was apparent; it never fully quit, on the back end especially. Some depth came about on the final, final sips.

    I'll go with 89-91++ points for now. Wait until 2019+ in hopes the alcohol subsides and allows the fruit to actually come to fruition (see what I did there? Fruit..fruition?...ok I won't quit my day job...).

I felt as though if the Vodka blast was to dissipate, there might be a chance to actually enjoy the wine, but it just couldn't get it together.
