  • 2016 MAHA Backlit – USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles Adelaida District (5/5/2021)
    WIML91

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of black currants, plums and black raspberries. Flavors of black raspberries, plums and black boysenberries. Medium to tart acidity, medium to firm tannin, full bodied. Drink now with air or continue to hold. I’d lean towards holding. Seems a little too young right now. (91 points)
