Community Tasting Note

  • brooklynguy Likes this wine:

    February 23, 2020 - Pulled the cork a half hour before drinking. It was an angry, angry wine at first. Raspy tannins, disjointed acidity, just unpleasant. But the wine blossomed after another half hour and really is beautiful. The nose takes on a vibrant floral complexity. Lush black and red fruits, dense and almost viscous bloody aspect, some mineral underpinning. A powerful and ripe wine but with very nice detail and grace. This is great wine and probably should be left alone for a decade to show its best. I caught pieces of why it’s going to be great. If you have a few, crack one. Otherwise I’d wait and I imagine this will be quite rewarding.
