Community Tasting Note

  • Life At Your Leisure wrote: 95 points

    July 27, 2020 - Deep garnet color turning tawny brown at the rim with a transparent edge. The nose gives off old leather, dried herbs, cola, and toasted oak on dark berries. The palate is old, matured, and has reached its peak, but will hold for at least five more years. Flavors of ripe blackberry, blueberry, raspberry compote are still very evident. However, the medium level acidity may not be able to keep it going as long as I’ve hoped. Secondary flavors of dark chocolate, coffee and cowhide. Finishes with hints of dried oregano, smoke, and dusty tannins. Drink now, but decant for sediments, until 2031.
