Community Tasting Notes 3

    July 24, 2021 - Saturday hangout at Domaine (Chicago, IL): Never been a fan of zinfandel and I seldom drink it anymore (I had one from a tasting earlier this year, and none the year before). A generous mix of red and black fruit on the nose with some of that sweet spice that I always get from zinfandel. A pleasant coating of dustiness here, this is reasonably drinkable now, even if the tannins are still a bit chewy. I will admit to being pleasantly surprised that this wasn't as much of an alcohol/fruit bomb as I typically associate with the grape.

    June 6, 2021 - Everyone said don’t open this, but I really wanted to try it. Two hours in a decanter opened it up quite a bit, and revealed the classic Monte Rosso expression. It reminded me more than a little of the old Ravenswood Monte Rosso Zins with the level of detail on the palate, as if fruit and spice were digitally imprinted on the wine.

    I likely will not try another bottle for several years, but this is not some crime against the wine. Give it some air, and enjoy the good stuff.

    May 8, 2021 - Don’t drink this wine yet.

    Ok, now that I’ve said the most important part, let’s proceed.

    My first try of this bottling, after finally being offered some via the mailing list. I knew I was opening this too soon. But couldn’t help myself.

    Poured a half bottle through an aerator and into a decanter. Started sampling at 90-minute mark. Lots of dark fruits, spices, mouth coating, yet impeccably balanced. Plenty of fine tannin that became more drying over time. Nose never opened up that much, even 2.5 hours in, but the palate was strong from the first sip.

    Do yourself a favor (and give this wine the due it deserves): Don't open your first bottle until 2024, decant well, and then get your baseline on when to drink going forward. Don’t waste a bottle like I did. I guarantee this will be a much better wine at 5 years of age, and I bet the real fireworks will start a couple years after that. Potential of 93-94. This bottling has class. Well done, Morgan.
