Community Tasting Note

  • Caring_Bear wrote: 90 points

    October 15, 2008 - Too early to drink and rate properly, needs another 2 yrs minimum. Tried alone and with a Petite Filet spicy potatoes, and grilled green beans.
    On the nose there is very evident tar, dark fruits, and violet. On the tongue there are currants, a small amount of rich fruit (I would figure from the zin), raisins, and tannins in that are, in general , out of balance for the moment. This is a wonderful wine, but it's definitely too early to drink. I will update tomorrow after leaving softly corked in the cellar overnight.
