Tasting Notes:
tasted: February 26, 2010 , from a member
3 stars "Acidity: green; Sweetness: dry; Body: alcoholic; Finish: persistent; Overall: slighly unbalanced; brick brown outer edge - just starting to show age. Nose of earth and something else but not a whole lot of fruit. Taste is a bit austere w/ no fruit to balance the excellent structure of earth and ??? - finishes with tannins and a gets aggressive on the back end. Almost amazing, but needs fruit to round out and make pleasing to the palate. Very interesting and almost great. Heat in back from 14% alcohol"
