Community Tasting Note

  • karl.1480 wrote: 89 points

    April 7, 2018 - Clear, medium intensity, ruby color.

    Youthful and fruit-forward nose. Black cherry, plum skin and black raspberry along with some prune, savory spice, violets, balsamic notes, turned soil and paint bucket. Bigger and deeper than the previous vintages.

    Medium(+) body, smooth tannins and high acidity. Bone dry with very good intensity. Black fruit, sour cherry, balsamic notes and earthy spice. It ends with a fresh, lingering finish. A rock solid wine that always brings great QPR. This vintage has more oumph and intensity and more potential for aging. Drinking great today with some 30 minutes of aeration but will benefit from a couple of years in the cellar.
