    November 21, 2015 - Excellent! Some bricking. Still nice cherry fruit and food-friendly acidity. Bottles continued to improve with age but probably at peak. Sad this was the last one from the case.

    October 11, 2015 - Still young right now, I think. I will give at least another 1-2 years before trying another. Right now, this needs at least 1 hour decant, preferably 2, to start opening up. When it does, it is a light style but I get the classic tarry undertones and floral notes. Seems classic but not a powerhouse. It was very good with Italian fare. Could possibly improve in score with age.

    September 10, 2015 - Smells and tastes like the feminine side of Nebbiolo, but it is dilute and lacks any grip or structure. Gets tiresome to drink very quickly, which for me is really unusual. This is the kind of wine Rimmerman usually hits for me, but this is a big miss. I've had two bottles now, several months apart and didn't like either.
