Community Tasting Notes 8

    February 9, 2021 - Medium body, medium garnet color with a bit of bricking. On the nose there is a mix of mushroom, earth, a touch of outhouse; bright raspberry and strawberry fruit on the palate, with a rocky underpinning to it all, lending a moderately grippy tannic backbone on the finish. A unicorn wine, but I’m not sure it quite lives up to the rarity factor.

    February 8, 2021 - Quite funky on the nose with dark fruit, smoke, bell pepper, and cigar flavors. On the palate, there are grippy tannins that add structure and flavors of red fruit, mushrooms, and some violets/flowers. Good finish. Really interesting wine. I'm not sure, how much better it will get and if the fruit will outlast the tannins, but it's great right now.

    December 1, 2020 - Excellent wine still well within its drinking window. Dominant flavor of green pepper.

    September 8, 2019 - Wines made from ungrafted vines have the reputation of having greater depth and vibrancy than similar ones from grafts. I am unable to make that comparison here but this bottle was certainly youthful seeming and vibrant with plenty of vigorous red fruit, earthy minerals, touches of graphite and wet leather, lively acidity and a firm quite long finish. Compared with my memory of other 06s, there was perhaps a deficit of sweet charm and rather more acidity but very good.

    May 28, 2014 - Elegance defined on the body but this bottle is not for the anti-brett crowd. A very vegetal, tobacco, and barnyard nose with peppery red fruit, grippy tannins, and an intense mouth feel. Finishes long. 86 CAD off the list at Laurie Raphael in Quebec City.
