Community Tasting Notes 95

    July 6, 2019 - Early in its drunk window, this wine shows a freshness, ripeness and high level of acidity beneath a black cherry and rhubarb fragrance and palate. Would love to try another bottle in next 2-3 years.

    June 30, 2019 - Decanted for about 90 minutes prior to tasting. Interesting transformation. Still retains some of the smokiness/earthiness I associate with Sta. Rita Hills Pinot but also develops an elegance and a layer of cola not apparent before. Air also significantly softened the acidity resulting in a lovely tasting experience. Plenty of sour cherry on the palate but strawberry and red raspberry begin to show as well. Think I will wait a little longer before tasting the next bottle to identify further evolution.

    June 23, 2019 - Dark fruit and full bodied Pinot. Spicy clove and black cherry surround the palate and a long finish. Will wait 2 more years to drink the final one.

    May 3, 2019 - Beyond tart, this wine was bitter and ungenerous, without any indication it would improve with age. Just a hair shy of flawed. I would have regretted it but for the fact that it was a gift.

    April 20, 2019 - Much better this time around. Wife raved about it as always. Always a crowd pleaser when these are hitting on all cylinders.
