Community Tasting Notes 3

    December 15, 2013 - Pretty, clear, ruby. Brightly acidic with cherry, cranberry, rose, clove tea, and orange peel. Food friendly with the tart acidity refreshing the palate. Limited depth, medium finish.

    November 8, 2013 - Friday Night Double Blind Tasting $40+ (Bin 75): Semi-translucent dark ruby; sandalwood, a hint of vanilla, cherry, rose, floral, sexy, almost peppery; a little vanilla cream on the palate with big tannin, lots of ripeness, higher alcohol, very dry with strong cherry; tasty and still needing more time but these '04s will not take as long as the '01s.

    July 6, 2013 - Decanted for two hours, poured back into the bottle and consumed over four days. The wine was blood-coloured and offered rose petal, dried cherry, hey, iron and tobacco on the nose. On the palate the medium- to full-bodied wine showed cherry, raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, orange, iron, black tea, coffee and chocolate, paired with high dry tannin, medium-plus acidity and very good length of the dry finish. It was on the riper end of the spectrum (as typical for Rocche dei Manzoni’s Barolos). The wine still needs some time; I would start drinking in 2016. Would buy again.
