This is at its peak and drinking great. If you have a bottle i would get drinking. This had all the meaty quality of a classic N. Rhone, without that salami/pepper nose. Great dark fruits, some earth, a little mushroom. Well done and drinking great.
Impressive nose of cedar, smoke, snuff, and bacon. Carpaccio and bone marrow continue, with some pleasant blueberry, after some air, gave up some chewy iron, but not a ton of structure on the back end. Good stuff. Drink or hold.
2004 was a great year for Radoi Coteau. This wine (like the pinots) has good fruit, excellent acidity and while a bit tart, the finish is long and refreshing. Happily, it is not one of those over the top Cali syrah's w/ 16% alcohol. This is a refined wine that is probably peaking in its drinkability. That said, I'm bummed it's my last bottle.
Tavola di Perpetua e FelicitÓ (Palena - Washington, DC): Nose of sour cherry, some tilled soil and subtle meats. Palate was focused and featured red fruit, warm baking spices, roasted herbs, and bacon. I was pleasantly surprised by this, thought that the flavors were subtle, refined and elegant...just lacking a bit of depth.
