Community Tasting Note

  • TXRDW wrote: 93 points

    December 24, 2017 - Very interesting wine. PnP about 2 ounces to get a quick taste. Mild bouquet, very acidic with strong, tart cherry dominating the notes. Set aside the bottle and left uncorked for 5 hours to do some last minute Christmas shopping. Came back and poured a full glass and was rewarded for my Christmas spirit. The Actaeon evolved into a much more complex wine, softening, balanced with a hint of sweet plum. Very long finish. Almost a completely different wine, which leads me to believe that the Actaeon needs to be left in the cellar a few more years... or at the very least a several hour decanting.
