Community Tasting Notes 4

    April 14, 2019 - We bought a case of this way back in 2007 or so and every 2d bottle that we open has had cork issues. Either they're broken or they crumble or they're hopelessly stuck and have to be dug out of the bottle and the wine strained. Very disappointing from an otherwise nice Pinot

    November 12, 2017 - Not sure if bottle variant, this one is quite different from last one I tried in April, it has a much open nose with enjoyable fragrance accompanying loverly bright red with light orange edge. Much more attractive! It is also amazing not feeling the alcohol with 14.6%

    April 29, 2017 - Cork is longer then normal one, about length of those of Bordeaux Grand Cru, Joseph Phelps, Opus One. Was able to pull out fully using old wine opener. Crimson color on cork but no deposit.
    Color: transparent dark red with yellow rhim = 3.5
    Nose: mostly rubbery, light fragrance = 3
    Taste: mostly red fruits, a bit of bitterness, more open up after half hour decant, with some coffee favor. Smooth tanin = 3.5
    Finish: medium but pleasant =3.5
    It is actually taste better the 2nd day with airtight and chi to 50F
