Community Tasting Note

  • Vino Loco Likes this wine: 90 points

    February 13, 2022 - Mid to dark colour, starting to show some age. Dried cherry, fermented strawberries, green pepper, maybe some licorice or something else savoury.

    Very drinkable, but a short finish and lacks complexity. That said, so much better than earlier bottles - optimal drinking window?

    I apparently have 11 bottles left, but I trust my inventory tracking as much as I would trust a salad from China.

    The 2014 NB showed well this weekend for us.
