    October 18, 2020 - Medium bodied and soft tannins. Alcohol melts away after two hours. Tertiary notes and less fruit. Cherries, vanilla and a bit of liquorice and earth. Drinking well alrdy.

    July 19, 2020 - Lacked the freshness I've experienced on other maturing Tigs and certainly not in the same realm with recent reports on other good bottles.

    July 17, 2020 - Very much in balance. Paired with a New York Strip. Not as heavy as some Cabs-- had a more elegant profile. Medium nose, medium finish. Will save other bottle for a few years to see evolution. Think this will last at least another three to five.

  • Neecies Does not like this wine: 84 points

    May 3, 2020 - Not much nose. On the palate, heavy, reductive, gritty. Not oxidated but it tastes like that could be around the next corner. Not at all what Tig should be. That is, okay enough to drink with pizza but more like pedestrian Chianti than a hallowed wine. Recent notes from others are much more positive.
