Community Tasting Note

  • mflesh wrote: 93 points

    April 23, 2022 - This wine was enjoyed on Day 2 and was a very tasty leftover from a wine event from the previous night. Wine was apparently recorked and left for those to enjoy the tasty spoils! It was still locked up on a whole but showed well with a bit of air. Barossa Valley wine and was a neat comparison to the SamiOdi OurHill Shiraz from Eden Valley. This wine was black roasted fruits, vanilla and baking spices. Just seemed to have a much more roasted black fruit character but definitely was open for business and likely due to the 24 hr slow ox that it was graciously given by an unknown donor! This one could still use 5 years of bottle age and can go forever in the cellar!
