Community Tasting Notes 16
January 3, 2015 - I am not a huge Barbera fan and this was an experiment with a higher end Barbera which proves a point for me. If you take good Barbera fruit and age in Oak for long enough time, then oak will smooth out rough edges typically found in a varietal. If there is one dominant flavor in the profile, it is the oak, but it works the wonder for the grapes and all together wine comes together as pretty good with flavorts of cedar, dried currants - no sweetness, sour cherry, vanilla and nutmeg.
Bottle was slightly corked.

April 29, 2014 - Is this finally starting to come around? My last bottle though, poured through an aeration gizmo in some attempt to wake the wine up.
Seville oranges, roses, dust and cedar. Massively sour palate, but just about in balance. Leather and sour cherries. Dry, tannic finish. Rather good! Some will like this more than me too (89-90)

August 27, 2013 - Still dull and boring. Smells and tastes just generically of "red wine". Fullish body. Dark. A hint of tarry overextraction. I still remain utterly unimpessed. No positive evolution on day 2, though the extraction/varnishy notes show worse then. (84-86)

March 26, 2013 - Huge improvement over the past bottle, and closer to the reviews that others and Mr. Galloni have written. Lots going on here, but all put together in a well balanced package. Nice QPR at $27
