Community Tasting Notes 3

  • justintime97 wrote: flawed

    January 6, 2023 - Unsure if I just got a bad bottle, but while the nose was incredible beautiful classic cab franc the palate was completely shut down, potentially tainted in some way. Previous tasting was at the winery and I recall it being fabulous, but this was a very disappointing showing, holding judgement on the wine as my hope was it was just this bottle. This bottle, 83 pts.

    December 18, 2022 - Incredibly young, so much too early to do this, but I wanted to try it. It took 48 hours to fully unwind, and then it was deep red fruit, subtle tobacco and a finishing note of balsam for as clear as Christmas morning. Fabulous structural balance, and a long, long future ahead for this wine.

    November 23, 2022 - Very young, backwards and will need many years before it’s really showing it’s true colors.
