2013 had a cheap cork that couldn’t be opened with a regular cork screw. 2014 corrected that, but those nickels had to be saved somewhere else. I’m a BIG fan of this wine, but this vintage is in question. I absolutely believe they’re using some sort of artificial vanilla and oak. Something is going on here because it tastes nothing like that past 6 vintages before it. That classic La Alta trademark palette has changed and it’s not because it’s a different vintage. It tastes artificial, no way else to explain it. Something is going on. Too bad. — 2 months ago
