Community Tasting Notes 5

    January 1, 2019 - Enjoyed this wine immensely during a NYE dinner. No bricking on pour. Great nose of cedar, cherry jam, menthol, dark berries, and some clove.

    Great full mouthfeel with well delineated dark/red fruit. Tannin has integrated well and was silky smooth. A powerful Grenache undoubtedly, but with a sense of elegance and sophistication.

    Paired with horseradish crusted dry aged prime rib, skillet potatoes, and swiss chard in brown butter. An excellent pairing ! This is drinking at or near peak right now.

    November 7, 2015 - I had the a the "Bull and Bear" Steak House in Orlando. It paired extremely well with the short rib. On the nose there is cherry, tobacco, and just a hint of cedar. It is dark fruits up front, but certainly not a fruit bomb. It finishes long and earthy. I will look to acquire some for my cellar.

    August 18, 2015 - Gorgeous. Had this at del frisco in Chicago. Knocked it out of the park. Not so fruit forward to call it lush but ripe and abundant black fruit but not overpowering or overbearing. Nicely balanced with cigar, earthiness & silt. Overall just so good.
