Community Tasting Notes 4

    July 26, 2013 - Deep cherry red in the glass. Cherry vanilla nose, echoed on the smooth, medium tannic, almost fruit punchy palate. The highly extracted California style that is not my personal favorite, but I can appreciate the effort. Probably better with a medium cut of red meat than with the usual salmon or duck suspects.

    February 17, 2013 - First night I felt this was smoke tainted, and I really didn't enjoy it. Second night it had "recovered" considerably and was much better. Solid core of cherry fruit with ample acidity/super soft tannins. If you're holding more of these, I recommend a solid decant.

    February 5, 2013 - Wonderfully balanced. This has a muted floral nose, dark berries on the palate and marked acidity giving it a sour cherry finish.
