Community Tasting Notes 9

  • Ebartone Likes this wine: 99 points

    January 2, 2022 - This is a rare 99 point for me. My last notes drinking this wine said to "give it 5 years" - so that was about 5 years ago, and was right on the mark! Much tannin fallout, which is what 2013s need to be successful, but no tannin drying. Just a very silky bottle with well integrated components now. Primarily black fruit still with no tawny whatsoever ( a few of my 2013s are showing signs of tawny, whcih think is too early) - minimal oak, or possibly it was so well integrated I couldn't tell. A special New Years bottle and the wife, who rarely gives over a 92, claimed it as her first 100 point bottle! I'll stick with my 99 though. For those that have this in the cellar it is drinking beautifully now, I really don't think I'd recommend more time (at least for my taste).

    October 31, 2019 - Rich powerful mountain fruit with lots of dark plum, cassis and chocolate leading to well integrated tannins

    April 21, 2019 - Overextracted, too much alcohol, losing fruit, maturing quickly. Fun to drink today, but for this price point I expect more than simple drinking pleasure.

    August 6, 2018 - Napa Wines Tasting - led by Maayan Koschitzky (IWSI - Israel Wine & Spirit Institute): clear, deep purple-black
    clean, intense aromas of dark cooked fruits with spicy notes
    dry, high acidity, high tannins, full body, excellent balance & harmony, excellent structure & complexity, rich flavours of roasted dark fruits, oak-vanilla, spices, tobacco, long alcoholic finish
