Community Tasting Notes 101

    June 6, 2020 - Popped and poured. This is a dark red wine. On the nose, I get blueberries, blackberries, huckleberries, and a touch of heat. In the mouth, this is rich and juicy, with plenty of dark fruits and assorted berries. The finish still shows some residual tannins, along with dark fruit and some subtle salt aspects. Overall, this is a big hitter of a wine. It is fun and ready for BBQ or Mediterranean food or Southern chicken or any of an array of rich, spicy dishes. Don’t think too hard about this wine. 91 points.

    April 4, 2020 - Agree with other recent notes - entering a good drinking phase - been waiting so long! Nicely integrated, rich, but not over the top. Will cellar my last bottle for a couple years to see where it goes.

    March 15, 2020 - Pop and pour at a restaurant. Firing on all cylinders. This must be moving into the optimal window range.

    February 20, 2020 - No decanting. Popped and poured and it was already beautifully textured with no hard edges. Scanning the reviews of the last two years, my impression agrees 1000% with BABLUES review at the end of 2018. It's like we drank the exact same bottle. Although, I'm debating whether to score it even higher. It is utterly delicious. It is not the most complex rhone blend, but it is not simplistic either. It is not a fruit bomb, but it is packed full of authentic, delicious red and black fruits. What I love about this wine is that it really is true to its site. It tastes exactly how a limestone-soiled rhone blend should taste. It doesn't taste like it could come from any other part of the world. It is very sweet and savory as I would expect from this type of wine from the Central Coast. But above all the intellectual nuances, it really is yummy.
