Community Tasting Note

    September 15, 2019 - I'm disappointed after having much higher expectations following tasting at the time of release. Although there is now very bright acidity that is almost overwhelming, with smooth but limited tannins, what happened to the fruit? Very thin on the mid palate. Maybe more will develop with time in the bottle, but with so little fruit I don't see how. Not a bad wine, but what is left? I will try it again in 2021; there is nothing to lose.
