Community Tasting Note

    March 21, 2021 - Meetup at Eddie Ishaq's (Eddie's Crib): Holy crap. Without a doubt this was mine and everyone's WOTN.
    Again, with the hype and all surrounding MacDonald, I didn't want to love it ...especially as much as I did.
    It was just so Napa without being everything I hate about Napa...
    The wine had so many subtleties that with each sniff I found more and more profound.
    Darker toned cherries and cassis, cola, anise, brown sugar, Umami and loads of Asian and Indian spices.
    The palate was caressing in every way. Medium bodied but uber complex. So much going on.
    The finish was perfect - no sense of alcohol with a dusting of tannins. Just WOW. The wine fux.
