Community Tasting Note

  • Bob & Sue Atlanta wrote: 85 points

    September 11, 2018 - Not enjoyable at all - very disappointed. No harmony or balance. Very weedy with intense barnyard overtones. Where is the fruit? After one day in the cellar - it just fell apart.

    Given the price of this wine, the length of time on the waiting list (great marketing!) and the ridiculous shipping charges for wines (over $20 per bottle) and you have to order and pay for a year in advance - I'm done.

    I'm getting tired of wineries with highly allocated wines, nickel and diming their core customer base to death. Good luck

I hate to say it, though, but the intense barnyard and weedy notes are a hallmark of the Syrah style that comes out of the Christophe Baron portfolio. They're some of the most savory, funky Syrah I've found in the New World and that doesn't appear to be your cup of tea.

    11/23/18, 6:48 PM - I think this style just isn't for you. The entire Rocks area of MF exhibits this profile. High pH, pretty good acidity, tons of funk. 13 was the hottest year on record at this point and Christophe crops very low so the weedy aspect is part of the deal too. The meaty, gamey profile is definitely unique to this small, 10 mile area.
