At Cousin Ron's, Evansville, 2/2013. Opened casually to sip while we were attending to other bottles for the big wine dinner. Seamless, stunning, integrated nose and palate, light in texture, tannins quite resolved. Strawberries, incense, leather, with great harmony, and lissome texture, still has a great future but at peak amd holding if well stored. At Romain What Is So Rare? Dinner prelude. Deserves more attention than we could give it under the circumsances.
Now we're talking. Classic Barbaresco with those blackish, tarry nebbiolo flavors on a more slick and slender frame than Barolo, seasoned with a touch of rosemary-like herbality. The structure is totally resolved so this really has a polished, glossy sheen to it, like a supple black leather jacket of a wine.
