    December 5, 2014 - Big fan of Santa Lucia but this wine was unmemorable. It had all the pieces, nice acidity, good ripe fruit but wasn't as refined or as integrated as I'd want.

    July 13, 2014 - Ruby colored; looks as if it's unfiltered and unfined. The aromas were initially closed, but after 30 minutes opened up with medium intensity. Aromas are somewhat floral, with cherry, strawberry, some cinnamon and minerals. The flavors are similar, but dominated by the addition of pomegranate. The wine is a slightly more full bodied and intense than when last tasted three months ago. The oak is moderate and not as obvious as last time. Pairs nicely with salmon; the pairing last time with Quadlrella di Bufala cheese was better.

    July 8, 2014 - A really tasty and complete wine with excellent rich Gary's (Pisoni) fruit. That mean deep dark red fruit to me. Terrific wine for the money.

    April 29, 2014 - The last time I tasted this wine was at a dinner with friends. The wine has not changed much. Floral aromas along with cherry, strawberry, cinnamon, spice and minerals. Similar flavors, with the addition of some pomegranate. The oak is more obvious this time. Still, medium richness and concentration of fruit; not real full bodied. Something is missing in the mid-palate. But, when pairing with Quadrella di Bufala cheese, the wine really picks up and seems more full bodied and enjoyable.
