Community Tasting Notes 3

  • csimm1161 wrote: 93 points

    July 10, 2018 - PnP at 54 degrees with somewhat reserved notes of kirsch, black and red cherry, saline, and some underbrush. Cloudy in the glass and fuzzy on the palate, with a medium attack and somewhat simple finish. A decent flavor profile, but linear overall in its execution of flavor delivery.

    This needed three hours+ of decanted air before it showed signs of opening up. Some deeper purple plum and black raspberry notes briefly emerged. A good domestic Grenache, but nothing that evokes much emotion at the moment. Can’t compete with the major CdP VV Grenaches.

    92-93+ points. Hold until 2020+.

    March 19, 2018 - Very nice bottle! Lots of floral on the nose, and then a really surprising punch of body on the mid and finish with a thick mouthfeel and a tantalizing tobacco, gravel and oak. Honestly though this was too early to drink, it needs I would guess at least another two years, but I wanted to try one.

    August 22, 2017 - probably the best California grenache that I've had. 1st day I would have given it a 90, but there was enough left on the 2nd day that 3 of us had enough to get a good taste. Really excellent, smooth, nice fruit. Interesting that the very last pour of the wine was very cloudy. The cloudy color did not affect the taste, but I've never experienced this before.
