Community Tasting Notes 8

    February 7, 2016 - As suggested by the differences in scores, not as enjoyable as the bottle I had a year ago. Decent, just not that excising. I let it breathe fro a few hours, and it opened up over time, but the flavors were not that deep. Could be bottle variation compared to the last. Oh well.

    February 27, 2015 - Solid 90 point bottle. Seamless. Fruit present, but not fruity. It is ESSENTIAL to allow this wine to breathe for a few hours -- at least 2, possibly 3-4. Dramatic change in the wine over this time.

    September 9, 2012 - Leather and tobacco; long finish. Smooth but not too round, with nicely balanced tannins.
