Community Tasting Notes (3) Median Score: 88 points

  • Very tight initially, needed a lot of time to come together. Still felt it was not so exciting. Had a little bit of strawberry fruit on the nose, touch mineral, but very mellow and couldnt pick up much. Had high hopes for this but didn't deliver.

  • My daughter (9): nose = lemon, orange peel, rushing fresh water river, wet stones, cherries, ivy, spice drawer, sour cherries, smell of fresh earth after picking weeds
    My 2nd daughter (6): nose = like every other red wine you drink Daddy; rotten apples, composte

    Me (45) Nose = sour cherries, spice, rhubarb, wet stones
    Palate = very bright ( acidic?), muted fruit but after an 1hr in the glass more noticeable, long finish. This wine has some integration to do I think. Overall not bad. Needs more time perhaps.

  • Red/purple , no aging apparent. Has licorice and dark fruit. Very tight. Grippy, with some flesh. Long red fruit and herb finish. Check back in 5 years to see an improvment, I'm certain.
