Community Tasting Note

  • Badfish Likes this wine:

    July 3, 2020 - Opaque ruby garnet core with tinges of purple towards the rim. The nose is heady, pungent, and complex with notes of graphite, cigar box, currant leaf, blackberries, violets, and mushrooms. The palate is similarly powerful with rich expansive purple and black fruits, admirable earth and mineral complexities, good supporting acidity, and smooth sweet tannins. This wine has aged wonderfully and is a much better effort than the 2004 going off my memory of that wine. A very expensive wine and while decidedly not worth the coin it is has turned into a beautiful expression of aged Napa Cabernet. Should be able to handle another 10 years with ease.
