Community Tasting Note

  • srh Likes this wine:

    June 20, 2020 - Winebar [4 Whites, 8 Reds, & 4 *shared* Bottles] from 06/19/20 (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): "Récoltant is a collaboration of declassified barrels of premium Cabernet that didn’t quite fit into Le Pich or Purlieu. The final blend was stitched together from several celebrated regions throughout Napa Valley, & Julian Fayard made the wine with the same standards of excellence that he practices in all of his projects.”

    N: Closed; Smoke, probably toast, atop ripe berries?

    P: MF body; RNDISH entry with NICE, ALMOST swtish frt met by an astringent pucker which pretty much irons itself out by the LONG, balanced, very, VERY slightly bitterish finish with a TANGY/swtness to the relatively few, unoffensive, dusty tannins. For now with food, may improve through '21, then drink into, probably through, '25. My VG+/EXC- for this decently made wine, trending upwards for QPR (assuming one can find it heavily discounted) from this commonly pricey AVA [e.g. the winery's "sold out" $60 :( ]. [Check with this vendor if interested in their *very* COMPETITIVE price!]
