Community Tasting Notes 2

    November 25, 2011 - Nice deep garnet with brick rim - looked younger than 25 years. Gentle fruit with vague citrus and earth overtones on the nose, along with similar palate notes. Wee-blalanced with moderate size and length, and refreshing acidity on the finish. A nice bottle, and quite ready to drink.

    June 30, 2011 - Bill's Monthly Lunch - July 2011 (Vancouver, BC): Tasted blind. Mature nose of red fruits, leather, dried tobacco and hints of cedar. In the mouth it’s fully resolved and beautifully mature with delicate and feminine flavours. Lighter in profile but has a complexity. Not a typical ’86 but very nice. Excellent.
