Community Tasting Notes 7

    November 22, 2013 - Followed for about an hour open with no noticeable change in character. Light ruby color that looks like Pinot Noir. Simple and hollow nose of candy, cola, and pepper. Light and watery palate with obvious oak chips, very little tannin, and a splash of acidity. Short and weak with red gummy bear as the main takeaway. 3+7+6+4 = 70

    August 3, 2013 - I remember when there used to be a Callaway Winery in Temecula, when they actually made wine there. This one comes from Manteca, along with who knows how many other labels. It has some merit. Though not deeply structured, you can tell it has a Cabernet pedigree by the mouth feel and viscosity. It is still pretty simple. The color is light ruby, almost magenta. The nose, though light, has aromas of roses and berries. The entry of the fruit on the palate is soft strawberry and red raspberry that doesn't suck. A hint of vanilla. A touch of oak that probably did not come from barrels. I believe it is totally dry. Red licorice on the simple but adequate finish.

    July 26, 2013 - A good everyday drinker. Red cherries predominate on the nose and palate. Smooth, but relatively simple. Drank half the bottle - used the other half to cook a pot roast.

    July 11, 2013 - A candy nose with a good deal of leaf. The wine itself is a lot of fun. It's sweet without having that cloying, astringent sugar rush-tinge. Really quite pleasant, gushy, full and bright. It skates right down your mouth, being very vibrant all along the way. One tone, but it's a well rounded one. Worthy.
