Community Tasting Notes 3

    June 3, 2017 - Sat, 06/03/17, $2 Tasting + 1 Fabulous, Shared Bottle (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): N: Almost funky, earthy/mushroomy, with cherry undertones? But, NOT an UNattractive take on such a style

    P: Med, poss MF, body; Decent, ALMOST swtish frt (approaching threshold R.S.?) met by a bit of astringent pucker which seems to build into the LONG, bitter/swt choc finish. IF one can handle the bitter/swtness, its a STEAL (given the tasted [closeout] $3.95) for drinking into '18. [As of early Apr '20, wine-searcher shows no sources for this vintage]

    June 12, 2015 - Aroma of plums and alcohol. Tastes of strong acidity with raspberries, plums and strawberries followed by a slightly bitter mouthwatering finish. A wine I would have enjoyed in high school. Probably not bad for a BBQ picnic.

    August 16, 2014 - Very fine value, quality way over its price point. Medium ruby, with legs. Lively cherry fruit in the nose, and a hint of earthiness that adds complexity. Nice varietal fruit, pure beam of cherry and earth, no off notes, medium body, good grip, and a nice finish. Drinks way above its pedigree. Excellent value, should be bought in quantity. 4-11-16-8: 89/100.
