Community Tasting Notes 4

    July 9, 2009 - Napa Valley, July 2009; 7/9/2009-7/11/2009 (Napa Valley, CA): Dark blackberry scents dominate the nose accompanied by some earthy notes that hint at some nice structure. Gentle tannins delivered nicely as I tasted this wine, and some bright raspberry flavors started out the experience before leading into the blackberries promised by the nose. As I continue with the wine, the tannins build up, and dry out the mouth quite a bit. 88+

    July 9, 2009 - My first trip to Napa, Ca.; 7/9/2009-7/11/2009: Gripping acidity on this wine that puts your entire mouth in a vise, light firm tannins with fruit that is that is hard to find under all of the tannin, acid and oak. It's there, enough of it, but just barely. I would have enjoyed this style with a fatty steak but this is far to expensive considering what you are getting. (50$ from the tasting room)

    November 28, 2008 - Consistent with prior notes. Still a good wine, but lacking the greatness of the 2005.

    November 16, 2008 - Drank with Fred shortly after this arrived. Nice powerful cab franc with less fruit than the 2005, but still a nice effort.
