Community Tasting Note

  • Caring_Bear wrote: 84 points

    October 24, 2008 - Brought to a dinner at the house by friends, tried over two nights. Both nights the first tastes were devoid of food, and my notes for both tries are consistent. On the nose there is light cedar, plum, and vanilla. Oddly the nose to me is not indicative of the blend, at least from my expirences with red blends that would contain similar varietals. Regardless... On the tongue it's pillowy, with too mild tannins and a flatness that indicates something is significantly out-of-balance. I honestly can't think of what to pair this with that it would properly stand up to, except maybe wheat bread. Horribly disappointing after having have other Phantoms in the past.
