Community Tasting Notes 7

    June 29, 2019 - Wow. This one was served pop and pour for the most part, and I still believe that this one could have benefited from a 1 day slow-ox at 11 years of age! This wine is vibrant, dark, powerful. Youthful, sweet punchy blackberry pie, roasted figs and dark chocolate swirling all around the place. Decadent. Hedonistic. Where some 08's sort of seem to be developing mild signs of tertiary notes, I'm sitting here wondering if this one was even ready to go yet! Finished strong with toasted tannins and black pepper.

    June 22, 2016 - Wine needs several hours minimum to open up. I didn't respect it. Popped and poured. Found it to be closed down.

    March 16, 2015 - Decanted two hours before approaching the wine. An explosion of complex fragrances grabs the nose. The tannins are graceful yet firm enough to hold up this wine for years to come. Excellent juice.

    October 11, 2014 - Ranked number one in a blind tasting of vineyard 29 and Bond. Silky mouth feel, black fruits, vanilla and cocoa, the best wine we have ever had....and what a finish.

    January 15, 2013 - Dark cherries, graphite, cedar. Some unresolved tannins still but a velvety mouthfeel and excellent finish even now.
