Community Tasting Notes 3

    February 4, 2021 - Site
    The wine is deep ruby.

    Nose
    The wine is developing and exhibits pronounced intensity with aromas of blackberry, black cherry, black plum, black pepper, dried thyme, cedar, vanilla, crushed stone and grilled red meat.

    Palate
    The wine is dry with medium (+) body, high acidity, medium tannins, high alcohol, and exhibits pronounced flavors of black cherry, blackberry, plum, black licorice, vanilla, and dried thyme with a medium finish.

    Conclusion
    The quality of the wine is very good. It is still developing nicely in the bottle but can certainly be enjoyed now. I am always impressed with the wines from this great Santa Cruz mountain producer. Huge bang for the buck. Life and wine are good!

    January 17, 2019 - Ripe plum, leather and black pepper. Will be even better with a few more years in the bottle.
