TVVV17: Heat and tank still showing. Not quite fair to judge yet — needs to settle in bottle. Mouth-drying tannin, and lots of structure, so will need a lot of cellar time.

C3: Lovely violet top note. Slightly high toned with a dusty note to the dense fruit. Beautifully pure and powerful black fruits on the palate. Perfect balancing acids and tannins completely unobtrusive. Fantastic. (Taylor VV. This was a better showing than a previous tasting, relative to the straight Taylors)
