Community Tasting Notes 3

    March 21, 2019 - Decanted and served. Quite an interesting wine but extremely youthful. Nose of cola and sherry. On the palate fine, chewy tannins with medium body and heavy notes of black cherry. It will be interesting to follow this wine's development.

    May 19, 2017 - Similar notes one year later. Bumped it 1 point. This is special. This tasting note is for all you golfers. Was out out Burning Tree and Congressional last week with upcoming rounds at Erin Hills and Baltusrol. Certainly not bragging. Rather feeling lucky and fortunate. As such thought it was appropriate to pop something special and reflect on that. This wine will make you sit back and forget about the negativity or issues in this world. Similar to when playing golf on a quiet special golf course. These types of escapes are so special and this when delivers. Still way too young to drink and would like to convince myself to hold the 100 RP pointer for another decade+ to truly taste heaven. Though for now carpe diem.

    May 21, 2016 - This wine is not for the faint of heart. It's expensive, hard to secure and a high octane massive wine. I just received a few and had to pop one. Very early, I know, but I have loved the last three vintages. I did decant for 6 hours which opened up the wine. Full of fruit, aromatics, and the Bevan mouthfeel that I just love. It is so dark, rich and powerful but not over extracted or jammy. This wine is beast mode in a great way. Love it. Had it alongside a 13 Buccella which was also good, but this was better.
