Community Tasting Notes 25

    January 11, 2019 - 3 hour decant (mag decant). Nose: Aromas of black fruits, moss, and graphite. Palate: Very youthful even after the big decant with almost astringent tannins, very present acidity and a linear finish. With that said this does provide some early enjoyment with flavors of red and some dark fruits, subtle earthy flavors and an elegant, feminine finish. My next bottle will sit for at least another 2 years and probably face a bigger decant at that time (5+ hours). 90+ points.

    January 8, 2019 - This wine is lovely with dark cherry and blackberry fruit mixed with gravelly soil and spices. The tannins are fine and it is bursting with acidity. It opened up slowly so decant a while or leave alone for 2-3 more years.

    November 17, 2018 - Gorgeous dark red-violet. Highly-perfumed floral nose. Red berries and Christmas spices dominate, really tasty, reminds me of what potpourri would taste like fermented. A bit thin- Bodied on the finish but really tasty.

    May 7, 2018 - I tend to buy this producer in most vintages, and this is a very good example - really solid, has depth, nice savory tones. It doesn’t have the energy of the ‘15 but is perhaps more dense and full-bodied.
