    September 30, 2015 - Bouquet of cherry and dark fruits, slight vanilla smell, forest floor, loads of oak. I think this one needs more time. The vanilla and color are two indicators, as this is very dark and reminds me of a young wine. The tannins have mellowed out and softened in the glass over 4 hours. It's still a good wine but I'd let this sit a while. I'm sure my rating will change with time.

    December 26, 2014 - Somewhat surprised by the comments and score here, 87.5 at the time of this note. This is a serious wine, with an elegant bouquet that put my mind to Nebbiolo, especially warm vintage La Morra Barolo or a $50 plus traditionally styled Barbaresco. Tremendous and balanced acids, light tannins, tastes like it smells. Rewarding finish, interesting experience. The most Piemonte-like BdM I recall tasting. A lovely drop!

    July 14, 2013 - Swing and a miss. Crimson but with a very light body. Very transparent. The nose and the palate are dominated by the acidity. Sour cherries and mild herbs on the nose. Very light and understated for a Brunello -- more reminiscent of a poor chianti. 5+11+15+6=87
