Community Tasting Note

  • rashcar Likes this wine: 92 points

    January 10, 2018 - Poured out of a Coravin. Decanted to equivalent of 3 hours using Wine Enthusiasts IFavine machine also know as smart Isommelier smart decanter. Nose of sour cherries and wet stones. Strong tannins which tells me it's still young. Good finish that lingers on for 30 seconds. Ruby red color, light texture with slow legs in the glass. I bet once this MastroJanni had more time to work out some heat and strong tannins it's going to be singing. I can see 94+ in 2020.

    I go back and forth about the merits of dropping half a G for the device. I was hoping there would be a post-Santa sale, but no luck...
