Community Tasting Note

  • mtolerico Likes this wine: 97 points

    May 1, 2021 - Ripe red fruits, cassis, currants, cherry, raspberry, red apple skin, red plum, dried earth, leaf tobacco and cigar box, fine baking spices, clove, cinnamon and a touch of vanilla. This is perfectly balanced, medium tannin, acidity and medium plus body and length. This has the perfect weight and one of the better red fruit dominant cabs in the valley. Drinks well as a PnP, but will be putting this in a decanter for four hours before dinner.

    You scare me when you indicate “red fruit dominant” in this wine. Does the wine taste reddish almost eliminating other finer aspects? Dave

    7/7/21, 6:17 AM - Hi Dave, by "red fruit dominant" I'm trying to relay what type of fruit, usually I break Cabs into two camps, red fruit and blue/black fruit dominant. Red is more classic Napa while blue/black you find more often in the cult like or parkerized Cabs. Hope this helps.
