Community Tasting Note

  • repoper wrote: 94 points

    December 15, 2020 - Put into a decanter for several hours. In the glass it’s black as night. The nose is just so interesting. It starts off with the small of vegetables that have aged in a really interesting way and it’s overplayed with layers of red fruit and smoke. It different but incredible what smells wines have to offer. It attacks you mounts with a burst of those red fruits surrounded by honey, roasted vegies, cranberries and forest floor. Wow. Each bottle gets better and they have evolved in a way I never imagined. This is rocking. Glad to have more. Sad to not have bought other vintages. Nothing like giving wine time to resolve and come together. 94+. This has improve with each bottle. Can’t imagine where it will go down the road.

Each time I've tasted it, I've been struck by how saturated and structured it is for Loire valley Cabernet Franc. I would not be surprised if it turned out to be a 40+ year wine (which would surely take it well past my own anticipated shelf life!!).
