Community Tasting Notes 3

    June 6, 2010 - Popped and poured for Sunday evening dinner. Dark purple in the glass. Dark fruit aromas and taste with a high level of zesty spice. Finishes with silky smooth tannins. Throughout I can feel the higher alcohol level (14.5%) but it never really dominates.

    Have a little bit less than a 1/2 bottle for tomorrow.

    February 14, 2009 - On the nose - Much currant and pepper, a touch of oak.
    On the palate - Dark, syrah-like plum and dark fruit. A solid finish with a bit of berry and oak.
    This is certainly reminiscent of the CC Petite Syrah, which is still one of my fav Petites out there.
    A great zin if you like them darker, and a bit less fruit forward.
    Definitely more fruit is showing after 15-20m, and as it warms to room temp.
    Tried alone and with Potato Leek soup.
