Community Tasting Note

  • #1Winelover Likes this wine: 98 points

    June 6, 2018 - When all of us are focusing on the ‘15 (and even '16) LPV offerings, along comes its older sibling, the ‘14 LPV which is great on every level; color, smell, and taste.

    Dark black, blue and purple with a little red on the rim Nice charcoal, tar, wet stone. Beautiful smell of fresh cut flowers, black and blue berries, Nice acidity. Strong pronounced backbone and finish. Great correlation of the wine and the vineyard.

    Kudos to Mike Smith for building a brick shithouse that will last for years to come and get better with time.

    6/6/18, 7:05 PM - Nice note. I was just thinking maybe we should wish for some additional reviewers just to make sure we haven't all become total fanboys, but then I realized that the small allocations would be even harder to get so forget that thought. I'm still annoyed I couldn't get a Verdad last year. Although adding a 2nd OG was not a bad consolation prize. Wish I could afford more more than 1's and 2's or I guess should say I wish I didn't think spending that much money on wine is insane (and I know the price for the quality is not even that bad relative to lots of others).
