Community Tasting Notes 5

  • kevinleeht Likes this wine: 93 points

    April 23, 2020 - Dark ruby. Nose is clean and medium (+). Smoky, black and dark red fruits, black pepper, some nice banyard/forest floor. Throwing off a bit of heat at the moment. Dry with medium (+) acidity. Medium (+) tannins. Body is medium (+). Flavour is full and palate has blackberries, dark fruits, red fruits, spice, . Finish is medium +. Very good complexity for this price point, punching above its weight. Again signs that 2016 vintage is a big powerful structured vintage that also flavours early pleasure.

    November 4, 2019 - Deep color.
    Nose > Rich red fruit, with a thread of pretty, herbal spice & lavender.
    Palate > Big, rich, round, ripe, smooth dark fruit. Great balance. Med+ intensity. Some grippy oak/skin tannins.
    A fruity beauty.
    14% ABV

    80% Merlot, 18% Cab Franc, 2% Cab Sauvignon

    September 21, 2019 - Spicy, earthy, smoky, espresso bean and licorice infused cherry sensations are with you from start to finish here. The wine is polished, fresh and inviting, with a core of ripe, elegant earthy, red fruits on the palate and in the finish.

    April 29, 2017 - Medium bodied with a smoky, cherry personality, the wine is soft and polished with a plummy, earthy, chocolate finish.
