Community Tasting Notes 33

    February 18, 2020 - A bunch of variable ct notes on this so I opened
    this with relatively low expectations. I thought it overdelivered by a decent margin. Some fruit hanging on but this is well into secondary phase. Good concentration and a slightly more brooding aromatic profile. It isn’t terribly nuanced but it is was a good and unfussy drink.

  • greedy Does not like this wine: flawed

    November 2, 2018 - No fruit left. Awful. Dumped it

    October 9, 2018 - Over the hill! Maybe just a bad bottle (high fill, cork seemed ok). First opened it was well drinkable, but with heavy tannins and without any charme or elegance. After an hour, vinegar-acids overlayed everything.

    July 11, 2018 - Great wines at Oriole in Chicago!: Drank at Oriole in Chicago as part of a reserve tasting list. Good choice. Tar, earth, mineral, dark cherry, wet animal. Very friendly with the exceedingly wonderful capellini with Australian winter truffle, puffed wheat and yeast beurre monté!!

    May 25, 2018 - Absolutely in the zone. great nose of tobacco, tar, chocolate and dried flowers. The palate is sweet and full with some raisin fruits and plenty of savoury nuance. It has flesh underpinned by sinewy muscle. Balance is really good.
