Community Tasting Notes 102

    January 21, 2022 - Decanted and fragrant notes of red raspberry, cherry and earthy dried leaves are displayed immediately. I followed this wine over 4 hours and it was delicious throughout but evolved constantly and, to my palate, needed as much air as I could give it to fully express itself. The nose remained fragrant throughout and evolved into a delightful smoldering red fruits and earthy barnyard aromas. As the acid settled over the hours, wonderful notes of red raspberries shine on the palate only to be followed by flavorful black currants and blackberry. Gentle minerality and soft leather on the mouthfeel. Alcohol level on the bottle read 13% but I’d bet it was at least 14%+. In a complimentary way this is a great bottle to introduce to your “big Napa Cab lover” friend who wants to dabble in Bordeaux. An excellent wine tonight it will only improve in the years to come with greater complexity.

    January 5, 2022 - Beautifully balanced, medium acidity, medium tannins, fruit restrained initially but stewed forest fruits there, but plenty barnyard and graphite also. Really lovely, glad I still have another bottle!

    December 31, 2021 - As others have mentioned, slight barnyard on the nose, but soft tannins, decent acid, good integration and long finish. Very nice right now.

    December 10, 2021 - Less funk on the nose versus the last few I had tasted. For some that is a plus, for me, I missed the added complexity. Still, drinking very nicely, plenty of acid, smooth tannins. Not in your face ripe fruit like some 09’s, still had a more classic style to it with berry notes and pencil lead. Very enjoyable.

    December 4, 2021 - This is drinking phenomenally now. Good nose, nicely integrated tannins and a long finish. Really good.
