2004 Podere Rocche dei Manzoni Barolo Vigna d'la Roul
Community Tasting Notes 7
May 24, 2015 - Memorial Day Weekend at Lake Lanier (Gainesville, GA): Really nice wine drinking near peak (though others are very youthful), this had lots of dried red cherry, roses, and cedar; the palate showed good texture but drying tannin that made it not the best pairing on a warm Summer day.
May 2, 2015 - Old World Blind Tasting >$25 (Bin 75): Dark core with larger crimson rim; creamy oak, vanilla, dill, red cherry strawberry, acetaldehyde, Pledge, new oak reminiscent of Rioja, good density and nobility that says it is a good producer and/or bottling; cedary tannin on the palate, sour cherry, long, orange oil, mandarin oranges on the finish, wood tannin; nose was a ringer for Rioja but the palate reminded me of Barolo so I called '05 Azelia Barolo; this bottle showed extremely young and needs 5+ years to soak up the oak whereas others have seemed really ripe and showed much less oak, I prefer this one but patience is necessary.
January 2, 2015 - The Rose family
July 26, 2014 - Saturday Night Double Blind, $40+ (Bin 75): Dark core with crimson orange rim; hints at soy, cedar, roses, sweet and dried cherry, orange zest, sandalwood, potpourri, sexy; grainy tannin, brown sugar, tannic and dry finish; this bottle was advanced with hard tannin.

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.
