    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.

    May 13, 2014 - I feel as if my knowledge of Nebbiolo up to this point has been a fraud. There was a freshness and fruit forward quality to this wine that showed me possibilities I hadn't tasted before. Really something extraordinary.

    April 12, 2014 - This may be the best wine offered by Garagiste in terms of QPR. Thankfully I still have 3 bottles left to see how this evolves.

    April 8, 2014 - Brick maroon going to pink at the edge, medium viscosity. Aromas of cedar, dark cherries, crushed violets. On the palate: dark cherries, red fruit, vanilla, with well integrated acids; characteristic grip emerges in mid-palate, but relatively subdued for a Nebbiolo; medium plus weight in the mouth. Long finish, with floral and cherry flavors lingering on and on retronasally. Stood up well against a rich pork belly and roasted beets. Great purity of expression without being at all one-dimensional. An attractive, well-balanced package with good typicity and style.
