Community Tasting Note

  • lovemycab Likes this wine: 93 points

    January 16, 2022 - Enjoyed over the course of a few hours. Deep purple in color with medium plus intensity. Both red and black fruits here. Secondary notes of oak and spice. Some earth and leather notes coming through. Even after a few hours, this still felt like it was holding back a bit. Would give it a much ox time or long decant. There is plenty left here and going strong.
