Dinner with the SLDS at Mark's: Tar, raisin, dark florals, cherry and char. Palate is resolving beautifully, the balance remains excellent and there is a pure fruit presence that is still delivered. Long and fine. =
Medium garnet-ruby color with a bit of bricking; delicate, elegant nose with red fruit, floral, subtle; palate has red fruit, fresh acid, still quite tannic, slightly drying. Could use more concentration of fruit and flavor to balance out the structure, going over the hill. 88-90.
The bottle’s filling level was perfect and the cork looked pristine. The wine was brick-coloured. It offered rose petals, mint, some cherry, some blueberry, some blackberry, herbs, spices and tea leaves on the nose. On the palate the wine showed a rustic flavour profile, with copper, some cherry, some blueberry, balsamic notes and a hint of tea. The wine was medium-bodied, with good acidity, powdery tannins and good length. It was a little rough on the backend, but other than that round and supple. A solid Barolo.
