Community Tasting Notes 57

    October 2, 2021 - Monsanto never misses with their CCR, even in tough vintages like this one. The 2014 is darker than usual, featuring rich plum and leather. This is fully resolved and in a good spot.

    September 1, 2021 - This tasted very young tonight. Almost grapey with a lot of sappy red fruits. I think it will gain some complexity with more time.

    June 23, 2021 - Some what dark, lovely nose. Underripe dakr berries. Some flouerish notes. Rounded and elegant. M+ body, fruity taste, not jammy.

    May 17, 2021 - Better showing this time than last time. A nice version of Monsanto's CCR in a rather middling year. I very much enjoyed this, but it's a clear step (or more) behind 2015 and 2016.
