| ||Tasted by Nacnud on 4/11/2015: A Total Wine direct import (like most wines at Total Wine). For the price it's an enjoyable drink, and this was a vintage of high temperatures so it's ready to drink. So open knit and fleshy, I didn't find it intriguing. Maybe some more time will do it good, let all that fruit settle down. (231 views)|
| ||Tasted by ilbotto on 11/27/2014 & rated 91 points: Great nose of violet, wild cherry, tar and cedar. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and firm tannins. It has sour cherry upfront with a hint of oak and spice in the mid and a cocoa powder finish. (613 views)|
| ||Tasted by BillyT on 10/30/2014 & rated 90 points: Pop and pour. Initial reactions...spicy herbs, salty meat, menthol, shoe leather, blood from red meat, dark black cherries. Initial palate subdued but yet experssion fruit of cherries, dark chocolate. Think it needs more air time so I will reserve score until after dinner. So far struggling for a 92...more like 90. Back soon.|
With dinner, ok, 1 hour later the wine smoothed but was still somewhat muted in aromatics. Flavor profile was enhanced. I can't really tell the future of this wine but it may improve I just don't know. Still very nice, don't like 14.5 ABV and usually it is more balanced in European wines than California but this wine showed the alcohol. (623 views)
| ||Tasted by Eric Guido on 3/18/2014 & rated 92 points: The nose was pretty and floral with red fruit tones and a menthol lift. On the palate, juicy, ripe red berries turned tart yet stayed pure and focused in a more feminine style. The finish rounded things out with lasting notes of bitter cherry and inner florals.

NebbioloNebbiolo is a red grape indigenous to the Piedmont region of Italy in the Northwest. The grape can also be found in other parts of the world, though they are not as respected.
Nebbiolo is often considered the "king of red wines," as it is the grape of the famed wines of Barolo DOCG, Barbaresco DOCG, and Roero DOCG. It is known for high tannins and acidity, but with a distinct finesse. When grown on clay, Nebbiolo can be very powerful, tannic, and require long aging periods to reach its full potential. When grown on sand, the grape exhibits a more approachable body with more elegant fruit and less tannins, but still has high aging potential.
"Nebbiolo" is named for the Italian word, "nebbia", which means "fog", in Italian and rightfully so since there is generally a lot of fog in the foothills of Piedmont during harvest.
Nebbiolo is a late-ripening variety that does best in a continental climate that boasts moderate summers and long autumns. In Piedmont, Nebbiolo is normally harvested in October.
