A nose having dark plum flavors. On the palate heavy amounts of plum, blackberries and cassis very smooth and well integrated tannins. A very approachable wine - drinking very well but could still sit for several years.

Petrol and mineral notes on the nose. Acid dominates this palate, citrus and melon driven finish. An intriguing blend of citrus, apple, and melon flavors dance on the palate with a weighty midpalate.

Nose has cedar notes, with blackberry and dark notes throughout. On the palate this has huge tannins that overpower much of the blackberry fruit. A very powerful wine with a good finish. can lay down for several more years.

2004 Lamberti Amarone della Valpolicella Tenuta Pule

Corvina Blend, Corvina more

On the nose: stewed fruit, leather, sweet jam like (especially strawberry and blueberry).
On the palate a flavor profile with smooth and rounded tannins, initially filling the palate with strawberry and raspberry fruit and finishing with a strong sense that this wine has structure. That being said the mid-palate is somewhat hollow and while there is power in the finish there is a distinct lack of deliciousness that would put this over the top.

A nose captivated by menthol and mint. On the palate an astringent and medicine like overtone with a menthol like finish. Some soil like flavor notes, with a disjointed and odd finish.

Golden in color, this wine has overtones of apple, filling the palate with flavors reminiscent of an apple cider. On the palate it has a creamy texture that is very pleasing, with a small bit of buttery flavor on the finish. The nose is petrol like, and very intriguing.

A good amount of residual sugar dominates this sweet varietal. While the sugar is not cloying it does take the majority of the palate, with some of the experience also being some apple and peach notes.

While purchased nearly 7 years ago and laid down in the cellar since this is doing well. The wine brings a lot of subtle fruit nuances on the palate, incorporated well with some good acidity. While not much on the nose - this is a nice wine.

Funky and off-putting nose. Not what was expected from this bottle. Nose felt a bit ugly - full of unpleasant flavors reminiscent of fermenting black fruit. Disjointed on the palate. Double take on whether the bottle was corked. The overwhelming feel was that it was damaged. Finish was amazingly astringent. Most of the score comes from the amazing amount of astringency on the finish - quite simply amazing amount there and an epic feel for what grapes can do to the mouth.

Amazing amounts of dill on the nose and a huge amount of the dill carries through on the palate. While not what what was expected this is a good wine with an interesting overtone flavor of dill. Good marks for the structure that accompanies with oak and backbone that supports the dill.

An earthy wine with a tannic finish. This wine lacks more than it touts and brings a limited amount to the table. While the wine does have a good deal of earthiness it lacks a deliciousness and a is of monotone flavor profile, that somewhat disappoints.

Notes of lychee, rocks, and some apple on the palate. Not much on the nose but it does have some citrus notes. Overall the fruit is lively and the acid is good, with a nice rounded (slightly creamy) finish.
