Community Tasting Notes 4

    February 13, 2019 - I reiterate my last tasting notes. Opened again tonight's gut and those notes were spot on.

    Nose of crushed berries with some floral background character added. In mouth the wine delivers strawberry, black cherry and a cedar wood finish. This is a fabulous wine which is Cali Pinot thick and through. Fresh is the word that stands out.

    The finish is bright cherry with a small amount of cinnamon spice.

    April 28, 2018 - Twist and pour and tasted over two days.
    Dark purple color.
    Nose of black fruits and some brown spices.
    Big and rich with dark cherries and some clove and nutmeg notes as well. Acidity is sufficient to carry the ripe fruit and give it lift.
    Still, this is a robust wine. Enjoyable.

    November 20, 2017 - Twist and pour. Purple color. Clear.
    Tasted without food. Nose shows some heat, and a savory herbal note, along with ripe red fruits. Earthy and spicy on initial taste, with good ripe red berries and following on with notes of brown spices. Some dusty chocolate notes/cocoa powder as well. Put the cap back on and kept cool.
    Checked on this a few hours later. It has opened up, showing good rich fruit but with a spicy backbone of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. Long finish.
    Needs time. Packed with flavor and depth but still a little raw at this early stage.
