Community Tasting Notes 8

    December 28, 2021 - This is a wonderful wine. Improves with a short decant. Nose of fruits and lilacs. Nice and full body, chewy, toffee notes, fruit and spice.

    July 9, 2021 - Decanted 3 hrs. Comes across initially as a bit tannic a touch of heat. Soon though, a very attractive wine merges. 16 was another hot (so we thought in 2016) vintage and perhaps that accounts for the initial perceptions, but the wine has a lovely core of dark cherry fruit and a slivers of tobacco - very fresh too. In Red Mt reds, I often notice a dusty character, but here, it felt like hot rocks, perhaps Graves via WW? A fun comparison for sure and a really fun wine that I think will age really well.

    May 1, 2021 - Super big, definitely young (needs 2 more years) and incredibly well balanced with velvety layers but sharpness to acidity / structure. Stewed fruit is a really nice taste in the early palate. Great producer!!

    April 25, 2021 - Still young yet. Almost, but not quite, pulled together. Still a little too much vanilla (just a hint too much) and tannins that are a little out of wack, but I bet it rates another point or two in a year or two.
