Community Tasting Note

  • tp096255 Likes this wine: 96 points

    June 21, 2019 - Had at Sir Winston's with Chateaubriand tonight. For such a young wine with such a short 1 hour decant, this showed beautifully. I have gravitated toward Bevan CS the past few years because my wife and I both prefer fruit-forward wines. Not alcoholic fruit bombs, but 10 pounds of fruit shoved into a one-pound bag. This wine delivered that in spades. If you give it about 4-5 hours and you like fruit, then this will do it for you.

    Noticed you gave this wine a long decant. When do you think it will be ready requiring a minimum period for decanting?

    Do you know if Memento Mori wines fall into the fruit-forward camp? Dave
