    March 4, 2015 - Like the comments of others of the CTC on this wine, I give it a strong 91 pts. As others said, great QPR. A true example of the nebbiolo grape at an affordable price. Coincidentally, I read Asimov's essay about this wine in today's NY Times and I even picked up the "tar" notes. Read the essay:

    February 16, 2015 - The color is light red, somewhat like a Pinot Noir but a little more brick color. The nose is just like a fine Barolo - amazing floral rose notes with some vegatal undertones. Initial palate is completely different from an aged Barolo, but in a good youthful and lively way. Very little tannins, but some good acitdity. It starts to bring in some fresh red fruit flavors along with the floral notes. Finishes quickly, but this is a great wine and perfectly represents what you expect from the grape and style.

    February 12, 2015 - A great QPR. Brick red color; nose of cherry and a hint of spice. Dark cherry, some red fruit, and floral notes. Nicely balanced; long finish; has some more life and could go a few years.

    November 22, 2014 - This wine continues to be an amazing QPR. I wish the 2010s were as good, but they are not even close.

    August 11, 2014 - Love this for what it is--a young, fresh and very fruity Nebbiolo, not harsh at all. Bought a case and slowly working our way through them. I love Nebbiolo and the wife likes wines that are "smooth" and fruity to her taste. This one hits the spot.
