Community Tasting Notes 10

    February 4, 2019 - - Brick color and aromas of chocolate, blackberry, black pepper and oak. It's balanced and has flavours of black pepper, blackberry and chocolate with a full body. Round texture with a long finish - Decanted one hour. Layers of richness, some hints of mint on the nose too.

    September 1, 2018 - I think Paul Simon said it best when he wrote about this wine, "Hello Darkness my old friend". Because though it had been a couple of years and vintages since I last had this treat, it was as if we had never been away from each other. Right after the PnP, you could see how super dark it was right out of the bottle. And in this case, looks do not deceive . Big BlackBerry flavor with a tannic backbone. Just had layers of taste. Enjoyable now, but I think it still has quite some life left on it and may not e at its peak yet. Hands down a treat that I will have to get more of. I might be a little light on my rating even

    June 22, 2018 - What a cool wine. Super dark in all ways. Blind I'd guess petite sirah; it's all Blackberry and brambles. Round and big and just coats your mouth and teeth Massive bitter tannins - give it some time in the decanter or cellar. But really fun and interesting. A hit in the zinfandel/rhone/big red blend category. Will try to get hands on more of this as it's super fun, particularly at $33!

    November 12, 2017 - A little foggy on this as it was in the middle of a line-up (from last night). Impression of enjoyability and quality.

    September 19, 2017 - This wine never disappoints. A big, ripe, juicy California red. A slightly more complex Prisoner.
