Community Tasting Notes 8

    November 24, 2020 - The Third Annual Blind Tasting of American Pinot Noir (My House, Houston, TX): Retail $20. Funk. Not quite Brett, I don’t think, but there is a reductive, sulfur thing going on. Normally, I like the funk, but this is a bit over the top, even for me. The palate is fruity, but that funk is definitely still there. Very Good. 88 Points. thedrunkencyclist.com

    November 21, 2020 - Very good QPR. This will be our replacement for Meiomi, which we feel has not been as good since 2018 as it was in 2013-2017.

    November 20, 2020 - Pale ruby
    Nose of licorice and tart cherry
    Thin body slightly astringent
    Short finish
    Really felt quiet pedestrian. No sense of place. Won’t seek this one out again. Did open up a bit with about an hour of air.

    September 21, 2020 - Definitely not a fav of ours. Considerable funk on the nose for a screw cap. It sort of blows off and palate is light and thin.
