A bit more extracted than I thought it would be. Oak & blackberries. Velvety tannins and balanced acidity.

Stored properly. Decanted 1/2 hour. Slight bricking at rim. A bit of funk on opening and on palate. Fruit very receeded. Vanilla, cedar, leather. Bitter tannins calmed over the next hour. Didn't notice the vegatel Cab Franc much at all. Stayed fairly hot the during the entire consumption.

I had an '06 Massolino barolo as the family consumed this bottle before I had a chance to taste. They loved it.

No rating as this was a very unusual Barolo; maybe off? Very little fruit, very light brickish color. Tinish on palate, very acidic. Stored in temperature controlled cellar.

Drank at family dinner. Didn't get a good taste, thus no rating. Rather herbaceous and dark fruit which as in the background as I remember. A lot of sediment so filter. Wasn't decanted

Compared to last bottle in May, this bottle was way off. I didn't rate as I think it was still in travel shock as just received 2 weeks ago.

Very closed and harsh upon opening. Drank over 2 hours. The last glass was smooth as silk. Dark fruit, spice, some vegetal. We always love this wine for the QPR.

Wow. Best $20 Pinot I've had in some time. Glass decanted for about 20 minutes. It mellowed over the next 30 minutes and was excellent. Recommend a decant of 45-60 minutes at this point. Light ruby in color. Medium light palate. Cherry and raspberry with a little vanilla and earthiness. 2 more to drink luckily

Corkage at Cafe Verona. Opened 45 min before consuming. Aroma filled the table with flowers and cherries. Medium Ruby color. Palate shows red cherries, strawberries, and a little earthiness. Medium finish. Very nicely integrated and in balance. Drinking great right now. Stored properly at 57 degrees since purchase.

Same rating as bottle consumed on 8/2/15, but remarkably different. Bottle variation? Stored exactly the same. No funk upon opening. Much more alcohol and tanninns on the palate; the fruit was more prononced, and the finsih longer.
