Community Tasting Notes 7

    May 26, 2019 - Classic Husic cab: deep purple-black color; somewhat closed nose of black fruits and wet stone; big fruit-forward taste with strong notes of blackberry, cherry and oak, with an almost syrupy feel; firm acidity and a long finish of honey with a hint of cocoa. High alcohol, not a lot of restraint on display here, but count me as a fan.

    April 8, 2019 - Three hour decant. Very deep dark crimson magenta color. Stewed cherries, oregano, anise and ripe pomegranate on the elegant nose. Very smooth, dry palate with subtle spiciness. Firm, but not aggressive tannins on the long finish. This is showing initial signs of age and is in its peak drinking window.

    March 14, 2019 - Way to young to be trying this puppy. Quite perfumed of lavender and aged leather. Young tasting and seems like this is built to age. Flavors of fresh berry, cedar wood, and aged leather.

    This could have used 4-6 hours of decant but trust me it is well structured and built to benefit from age. Finishes with vanilla lingering flavor.

    February 22, 2019 - This is a dark ruby wine, thick, deep and rich. There are notes of lavender and eucholiptous on the nose with dark cherries and cassis. This is a strong wine, acidic with a long finish. The tannins are very structured. The 2012 is a good wine, but needs more time in the bottle, at least another 2-3 years. For comparison, I opened the 2003 during Christmas 2018 and it was perfect, perhaps at its exact prime. I strongly suspect the 2012 will age well.

    August 24, 2018 - This wine is deep inky purple red in the glass. Highly aromatic nose of red currant, gravel and eucalyptus. Big fruit bomb of cherry, currant and cassis, hints of dark chocolate, overlaid on a bed of minerality and firm tannic structure. Long finish, resolving to mild sweetness. Overall a bit rough and tumble, needs some time to find balance and integration.
