Community Tasting Note

  • TXRDW wrote: 97 points

    March 29, 2019 - What an amazing wine! Decided to buy a few bottles on the recommendation of LITEITONFIRE and I wasn’t disappointed. Started with a few ounces upon opening and the wine was acidic and closed. Decided to decant for about two hours and the wine became a beast. Seductive bouquet of dark, black fruit complimented by a beautiful opaque color, I was soon to be hooked. After two hours of anticipation I found the wine to be at that plateau when the taste screams “I’m at that level where few wines reach”. Notes of bramble, fig, plum and a touch of cedar, this wine is definitely not a fruit bomb. More of an understated elegance that sneaks up on you. 97 for now and some upside with a bit of patience.
