Community Tasting Notes (29) Avg Score: 90.3 points

  • My last bottle, and possibly my best of this. After a series of awkward stinkers, this is back to its tarry, old Nebbiolo-inflected self. Fudgy, tart cranberry sauce, rustic, powerful, and textured like a much older (and more expensive) wine. Great match with meatballs on a cold night.

  • Liqueur-esque notes of dusty soil, bittersweet chocolate, cherry cordial, anise, old wood, enchanting tar and roses. Sweet bouquet yet a dry and light palate with loads of intensity from acids and drying wood tannins. Grows deeper lower into the bottle, with some nice fleshiness. This is a really good bottle, very yummy. Woody finish probably too rustic for some, but I'm on board. 91-92 pts.

  • Stewed prunes, soil, dried flowers, coarse tannin, a little stinky as these often are. Great with pizza, and strikes me as a honest country wine with real guts.

  • Popped and poured, this took 45-60 minutes to open up so it should be aerated/decanted about that far ahead of time. Consumed over 3.5 hours. Clear ruby color. First aromas were of fresh red meat and minerals, then red fruits, cherry, cranberry; after two hours lovely herbal hints (oregano, tarragon ?), smoke, spice. Full and lingering flavors of cherry gave way to dried red fruits and a lovely dusty, rustic, earthy flavor. Sustained mineral flavors, acidity and soft, dusty tannins. Subtle residual sweetness, excellent length.

  • Great quality-to-price ratio. Smoky volcano and dark red fruits in the nose. Rock in a very interesting, unique, and excellent balance with bright cherries on the tongue. Enjoy!
