Community Tasting Notes 26

    October 31, 2017 - Pop and pour improving slightly with time but likely a year or two past peak (my preference is to drink stuff like this younger). Super extracted style with minimal acid and even less structure. Cherry syrup, blackberry liqueur, vanilla extract, plums, chalky cassis... Some unfortunate barnyard on the nose that does not mesh well with this seeet style. Overall enjoyable to drink without food.

    May 24, 2017 - initial funk on opening quickly blew off and everyone very much enjoyed.

    December 6, 2016 - A wonderful full bodied wine! A lot going on! All of the classic cabernet notes to include dusty candied cherries on the nose. Slight anise, hint of licorice, tobacco, an interesting cherry-chocolate-cola aroma. Decanted for thirty minutes and then drank over the next two hours. I wish I had more.

    November 26, 2016 - Ripe, raisiny, plummy dark fruit aromas with asphalt and herb notes later on. Plum and chocolate flavors. Ripe, but tasty.
