Community Tasting Notes 7

    July 3, 2021 - I opened the 2014 of this a few months back and thought it was terrific, so having one a year older, I wanted to see how they differed (if at all).

    Pop and poured. This is at peak drinking in regards to fruit still being up front, but you can tell it’s evolving and starting to give way to other characteristics. Very floral (as expected) and dusty. Deep red/purple in the glass with a bit of transparency coming through at the rim. Violets, mocha, baking spices, dark cocoa dusted blackberries and black cherries on the nose. Quite balanced on the palate with a dusty profile…nothing green or herbal here. Mid palate is dense with delicious ripe dark fruits and a hint of age coming through on the finish. I’d pop these now if you enjoy the fruit still being at the forefront.

    January 10, 2018 - Probably needs a couple more years of age. Powerful cab franc.

    December 22, 2016 - Easy nose of purity and elegance. Rich expression of blackberry jam, cassis mix well with a mocha hint with a slight taste of pine. Mouth has a light feel yet bold flavors defined by a woven complexity of tannins and acidity that goes the distance to create a long defined finish.

    August 5, 2016 - One of the stars of the evening. Rich, full extraction. Complex nose that hides until it has time to breath. Dark fruits, baking spice and crushed granite highlight a smooth and silky finish.
