Community Tasting Notes 4

    May 2, 2018 - This vineyard was devastated by frost in ’16 and the yields were so small that there will not be a commercial release. It is super intense with dark cherry, floral spice and earthy aromas and flavours. Tannins are sweet and the long finishes is flecked with minerals.

    June 28, 2017 - LB visit. Not my favorite of the line-up, felt thin and astringent.

    June 26, 2017 - Winos' excellent adventure in France; 6/22/2017-6/27/2017 (All over France): Expressive nose displaying intense black and blue fruits, lavender, ink and strong earth. Excellent concentration, a bit more forceful/masculine than the previous wines, generous opulent black fruits, medium acidity and earthy mineral. This is a big scale flamboyant NSG that can please both the old world and new world palate.

    May 27, 2017 - There’s no white version of this in ’16 with only 15kg of fruit harvested. This red is intense, sweet and concentrated. There’s plenty of spice with notes of sarsaparilla root. It finished with pomegranate-like crunch.
