Community Tasting Notes 3

    May 15, 2018 - I would not go as far as saying the bottle was defective, maybe borderline going bad. It was definitely a bit off - based on the other '88 bottles we have had of this wine. With this particular bottle the color was very dark brown with just a bit of rusty red, the nose is old soil and the flavor void of fruit. Overall had a musty smell and taste.

    September 18, 2009 - Last bottle of this vintage. Still very bright dark red. The colour does not give away its age. It took a little time to open up but it was worth the wait. Dark cherry, mushrooms, forest floor and touch of dark chocolate. Good finish. Acidity quite pronounced but not out of balanced. Very enjoyable. Time to drink up.

    February 13, 2007 - Took about an hour to open fully, showed nice integration with ripe red cherry fruit and good acidity. Just a touch of astringency livened things up a bit. Wasn't particularly complex but the sangiovese was at the front and it was both satisfying and an excellent food wine.
