Community Tasting Note

  • Mootsie wrote: 88 points

    October 20, 2021 - Plum and pepper. Different than prior years, more purple fruits.

    Edit: day 3 now, best since the bottle was opened. Still purple fruited. Not as good as the last few years. A little disappointed.

They all have been different, but enjoyable. This year’s hopefully is just too young yet. It’s a departure in a direction that isn’t as appealing as previous years. Time will tell.

I finally got fed up with the "wish I would have bought more" on this one, and ordered a case of the 2020 Old Vine. Popping a bottle tonight to see for myself. Hoping we'll somehow like this better than the posters so far.
