Community Tasting Notes 11

    June 6, 2019 - I had intended to wait a year or two following last tasting as I thought the tannic backbone would keep this beauty going for years. Immediate gratification got the better of me and we gulped this incredible fruit forward, pop-n-pour monster!

    Red fruit abounds, round mouthfeel, maybe a little heat on the finish but that's just looking for flaws. Drank across a wide range of foods, from pasta dishes to hamachi crudo to some illegally good white truffle mashed potatoes; each sip following every bite revealed some new aspect of the wine, all of them delightful.

    This is a great cross-over wine; you can drink with just about any flavor profile. Enjoy it now; while it might continue to evolve, it is so good now, why wait???

    February 10, 2019 - 5 months since the last tasting. A very important 5 months, apparently. We loved this wine! It is drinking beautifully after about an hour decant. I tried to describe the flavor and nose and came up empty. I knew I liked it but couldn't explain why. Then my daughter says, "It smells like dates." Yes, that's the nose. It is all date. The flavor is sour cherry and currant and all that is right in the world.

    Two final thoughts: 1) tons of tannin so this has a long life ahead of it. 2) So happy to have 4 more bottles!!!

    September 25, 2018 - Give this 95% Syrah/5% Grenache at least 2 hours of air time before drinking. Brown-burgundy color in the glass; tightly wound at first but approachable after an hour and in the zone after 3, with a long finish. Paired nicely with filet mignon. Certainly has enough tannin left to cellar a few more years.

    We'll be serving this at a dinner next month, but will leave the other bottles untouched for at least a year to see how it develops.

    July 17, 2018 - This wine has definitely improved with a little more age. Tannins have softened and are not nearly as noticeable, so is now smooth and easy drinking with plenty of dark fruit.
