Community Tasting Note

  • joshabramson Likes this wine: 97 points

    November 12, 2019 - Still very young, but approachable... fruit concentration is on point, very nicely balanced, elegant on the finish. As expected, this is top tier juice... but surely this will be even better in 2-4 years once it's had more time to integrate.

    You stated 2 to 4 years would be a good time to wait before opening this wine. What do you think would be the optimum time to catch this wine at its best. I can easily wait many more years than what you stated. Dave

Opening this today with several hours of air, or better yet waiting in 2-3 years will still give you a big youthful and ripe fruit experience. I’d guess this will take another 10+ years to start to develop some more mature notes, but not sure these huge fruit fwd wines ultimately benefit from that much time.

    Thanks for your answer. I will have to give some thought what I want out of this wine before matching it up to a time period. Dave
