Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Some green notes on the nose. Dark and inky. Herbs, mineral and wood. Flaors of dark plum, olives, cassis, leather and scorched earth. Fleshy with rich extraction. Savory and big. Nice wine. 92 pts.

My duties encompassed everything from pouring wine in the tasting room to topping wine barrels and bottling. Three years later upon an invitation to work a crush in France, I left my job and went to Bordeaux. When harvest was over that year I toured the French wine country, meeting winemakers who, in light of my juice-stained hands, treated me as one on them. With this special recognition, I was able to learn much more about grapes and wine than in three years working in the tasting room and winery. In particular, I learned about the importance of "terroir". Read less
