Community Tasting Note

  • Decanting Queen Likes this wine: 94 points

    August 16, 2020 - This was a much better experience than my last bottle of this wine. I think it may be due to leaving it at cellar temp for longer and not letting it get to warm during the decant. I found that as it warmed the stemmy/herbal/green notes became more prominent.
    Tonight this was a lovely wine with ripe juicy fruit, mushrooms and earth on the nose, all of the above on the palate with some licorice and spice. Not as savory as many Syrahs (again, I did not get any funk, blood, or olives). Smooth tannins, balanced acidity and a long finish. Great with and without food (lamb tonight)
