Community Tasting Note

  • jmcafee Does not like this wine:

    May 19, 2021 - Powerful funky musty nose at opening, overwhelming most of the wine's character. This improved by 75% 3 hours after decanting and aeration, but was still lingering quite a bit after 24 hours. On the good side, there is a nice Bing cherry on the mid palate with good acidity, and medium finish. If the funk was not there, I would say this could age nicely for another 3 years until 2024. If your bottle is like mine, pop and pour... down the drain.
