Community Tasting Note

    April 30, 2021 - 3 days in Napa: Arkenstone, Memento Mori, Maxem, The French Laundry, Christopher Tynan, Kinsman, Harlan, Vice Versa, Accendo, Fairchild, Macdonald, and a truckload of others (Napa): Barrel sample. This new blend from Vice Versa showcases luscious black fruit on the front end that is instantly swept away by a wash of fabulous acidity and drive. A wave of rolling power pushes the flamboyant fruit right on to the mid-palate with authority. Note though that the brawn here is controlled and is not so flashy that is distracts from finding its balance, even in its juvenile state. Finishes with a slightly furry coating on the palate, providing texture and chewiness.

    Overall, I found this to be a distinctive barrel sample not just for its succulence but also for its punchy side. A higher-toned hit flashes on the higher register mark just long enough to perk the senses before rolling its way back to juiciness. A very swanky wine indeed. Once in bottle, I’ll be very curious to see if it continues to distinguish itself among its siblings in similar fashion.
