Community Tasting Notes 5

    February 22, 2019 - From a magnum. Didn't quite get this wine but appreciate the effort. Inky and viscous wine. It tasted better after 24 hours opened. Cherry, mulberry, iron, earthy and raw. Huge tannins at the start which Required hours if not days to ease. Started to after many hours. This wine is built to age.

    July 27, 2018 - July 2018 Switchback Ridge Visit (At Phifer Pavitt): Smooth, inky and powerful. Uber-dark with great balance and some finishing structure. I have not drank the 2014 in some time and this vintage of SR PR is humming, perhaps akin back to the epic 2005 that was glorious and iconic for me. I bought a handful of these to take with me as we left the winery, as this is one I will gladly keep more of to share and enjoy over the next 7-10 years.

    February 18, 2018 - Falltacular 2018--some TNs (My House In The South OC): Opened yesterday, kept cool overnight under opened cork. I spent a part of my Sunday afternoon tasting through a # of the remnant wines from yesterday and I put this as the last bottle to taste. I know this wine pretty well so I thought I should end with it. It pours pitch dark--no surprise there. Has the SR nose that shows all the dark berry aromatics. Wow, like a bulldozer of flavor across my palate. Dark chocolate, dark berry, gingerbread, iron, espresso. I'd never start a tasting or meal with this wine, but for sure, I've ended a # of evenings with a glass of SR and this is right there with the house style. I also want to point out that I swirled the hell out of this and I didn't get any booze or heat on this at all. It is labeled at 15.5% and there is no trace of that here. This is just stacked with flavor, color and tannin. Hell, I am going to sit this on the counter and finish the last glass tomorrow and end that last glass with a big 'ol stained teeth smile that only SR can do. Thank you, Kelly.

    December 4, 2016 - Consistant and equally enjoyable as previous vintages. Color cranked up to 11. Big blue fruit and lots of chalk and iron, gritty. Long finish. Boozy and fun. Good teeth and lip stainer.

    December 3, 2016 - Aight, I'll be the first to go with a note. These arrived a few weeks ago, and with my wife making a flourless chocolate cake with raspberries tonight, figured this would be a nice marriage of food to wine. First, this has the depth of color that is much like the Palisades fruit coming out of Carlisle and Mending Wall--the inky, staining quality it reflects in the glass. The wine is stoked up with iron, dark chocolate, charcoal and dark fruit, finishing with some grip that underpins everything. The finish here is long and strong, with a distinct acidity showing, too. Yes, there is some booze here, it wafts out in the aromatic but I suppose at this stage, if I am going to get after CA petite, I gotta accept that this may be in the bus for the ride! No change over dinner, other than this tightened up some. Big wine, lots of stuffing and as always, fits the petite bill perfectly.
