Community Tasting Notes 6

    July 9, 2019 - Stony, leafy, smoky, and salty sweaty notes over intense blackberry and currant on the nose, quite heady. Follows up nicely in the mouth. Bright black fruit and olive notes that persist through the finish. Drinking great now, seems to have balance that will help it age elegantly. 93+

    May 25, 2019 - My tasting note turned out really similar to Jeb Dunnuck's. Very ripe blackcurrant that only partially pokes it head out behind a stony, smoky mineral character- peat moss, sea air, brine, ash etc. Love that it still has a fruit presence even with all the earthiness that threatens to overwhelm, and time will definitely help that fruit to blossom, but this was so delicious, unique and with no heat whatsoever. Unfortunately it disappeared quickly, none was saved for a day 2 analysis. Still easily worth every penny, $40 at Hi-Time wine cellars, Costa Mesa.
    Rated this the same as his 2015 M.C.K. syrah- I felt like this was a little more complex, but that the M.C.K. was more ready and fully expressive at this point.

    December 29, 2018 - Double decanted for 3+ hours. Rocks notes on nose and palate. Well rounded and smooth. Big wine, but not unnecessarily so. Solid QPR.

    October 9, 2018 - Very opaque in the glass. Another huge wine from Charles Smith. Nice gritty tannins. Very long finish. Nice mirerality and graphite notes on the palate.

    June 22, 2018 - Good daily drinker from the River Rocks vineyard. Dusty...crushed stone, plum and blackberry on the nose. On the palate the fruit takes a back seat to the minerality. Medium finish.

    Nice WA Syrah. Another memorable one from Charles Smith. Good QPR.
