Community Tasting Notes 5

    September 9, 2020 - Consistent with previous notes--sultry and sensual. Ripe fruit that hasn't gone too far, intoxicating aromas, and world-class balance. Roasting meats on the nose that Gimli would be proud of, mouthfeel of pure silk.

    July 11, 2020 - If you didn't know from the deep color, from the first nose you know it's Cali Zin, with the dark and expressive fruit, the waft of blueberries and spring herbs coming over the top. Comparatively low acidity, but plenty of structure. Mouthfeel out of this world, silk in a glass. Well more mellow and elegant than one expects from a Zin, the heat mostly undetectable. Fruit from nose continues onto palate. Notable length. It's easy for $100+ wines to not live up to the hype. This one absolutely does.

    August 31, 2019 - My rating of this wine is well above the others posted on cellartracker.com......but those reviews are from a good while back. Hence, there is good evidence this wine is evolving to something nearer the WA rating. I really enjoyed, it but wish I would have left it sit for a couple of more years. This is a wine for those who like deep, decadent wine.

    July 21, 2017 - Dense sweet briary zin fruit. 16.5 % but with dense sweet fruit which keeps this amazingly in balance .
    Not for everyone, not something I'd serve with dinner, but a very easy crowd pleaser whenever served

    April 11, 2016 - Finest Provenance Possible - Tasted at Winery

    Tight, yet soft with black fruit and flavors of charred meat and smoke. Very smooth. Right now this we is a strange mixture of alcohol burn and smooth mouthfeel.
