Community Tasting Notes 5

    November 9, 2018 - This rich and powerful Cabernet is a lot of fun to drink. Maybe it wouldn't withstand close scrutiny, but - damn - it's tasty. Ruby red in color and full in body, the wine has aromas of cherry pie and red licorice, with hints of menthol and fresh herbs. Tastes of blueberry tart, boysenberry, anise, and vanilla, with a sweet and lingering finish. 15.7% alcohol.

    I'm a fan of big CA Cabernet, but this pushes the edge of ripeness: this wine is fleshy, heady, and ripe, ripe, ripe. There is oak and there is fruit, so avoid this wine if you fear either in excess. Still, it avoids the typical extremes of a wine of this type - i.e., one that is syrupy, hot, and juicy. This holds it together in a way that, even if it's a bit of a spectacle, is still delicious.

    October 14, 2018 - Perfect Sunday night bottle. Decanted this for about 6 hours and drank over next 3.

    Blueberries, beautiful nose, cola, dark cherry, vanilla, cocoa. Superb wine.

    December 14, 2017 - Massive 15.7%abv. Clear dark purple, glass coating glycerin. On nose black and blue berries, forest after rainstorm, wood, coffee beans, brown sugar, whiff of heat which is understandable given alc level. Sweet cream this time with the coffee, dark cocoa nibs, star anise, full throttle berry in tightly wound core across palate. Full on tannins that soften after 20sec, finish lasts 45 sec plus. A powerhouse wine with upside. Buy some!
