Community Tasting Notes 51

August 1, 2016 - Tar, roses, strawberry, licorice, and lumber. A bit muddy. Almost fully integrated tannins. Too much tannins really.
If the red fruit holds up while the tannins soften more, this would be an outstanding wine. If I had another bottle of this, I wouldn't drink now; I would give it another few years.

March 31, 2016 - Nothing special here. Possibly a year or so past it's drinking window.

December 23, 2015 - Last tasted two years ago. It now has the color of a mature wine - a brownish-red, with bricking; a browning rim. Cherry, leather, sous bois, black pepper, hints of road tar, cedar. Excellent balance. At its apogee now and may even be declining from the peak of its maturity plateau. Drink up soon. As last time, a good pairing with Italian meat sauce (with Italian sausage) and pasta. Again, a better food wine. 24 hours later: still drinking quite well; may have a couple more years left.1 person found this helpful Comment

September 11, 2015 - From a magnum. Decanted and enjoyed with friends over 3 hours with pate, duck, truffle cheese and tomatoes. Golden pale red. Smooth and medium bodied with mature fruit, oak, spice and acid. Fine tannins were well integrated. A beautiful Barolo in its prime!

Soft nose, forest floor aromas.
Intense flavors of berry. Medium length.
