Community Tasting Notes 4

    June 28, 2014 - Medium garnet color, cherry, raspberry nose with hints of stone fruit. Medium-full bodied mouth feel; low acidity, soft dusty tannins, raspberry, smoke and hints of stone on the palate with a moderate length charred cedar finish.

    May 29, 2012 - Very pleasant, moderately oaky wine with more complexity and interest than one would expect for the price. This was my second bottle in a year. It seems to be a reliable, good value wine.

    November 3, 2011 - Lots of oak at first, but it blows off after an hour or so. Nose has cherries, cranberries, some spice. Generous fruit on palate, structure is ok, but is a little flabby. Finishes with a little tannin action and dried cherries. Pretty decent value.

    June 7, 2011 - Color: black cherry, not entirely opaque. Nose: cassis and cream. Taste: mashup of a boston cream donut on the attack, followed by increasing spicy gamey notes and black cherry/plum/cassis notes. Decent length (although fruit fades before oak). The varietals are interesting, Cab Sauv 35%, Petit Verdot 24%, Cab Franc 23%, Merlot 13%, Malbec 5%. Is Texas going to be a petit verdot hot spot??? Anyways, a little too much oak for my taste and a little disjointed, but good complexity and good length for a $13 bottle of wine. Will be interesting to follow this as it matures.
