Community Tasting Note

  • fclarity wrote: 94 points

    July 3, 2017 - From a pristine bottle purchased on release, this wine had a deep red center and orange rims. It had dropped quite a bit of sediment. After 4+ hours of air, the medium intensity nose put forth cherries, roses, tan spices, and candle wax.

    This had some moments in the beginning where the wine was a bit tannic. However, after extended air it became more balanced and fruitier. It had rounded tannins, juicy fruit, and excellent length.

    This wine was "new wave" enough that it might be tough to pick out in a blind tasting as a Barolo. However, I think it wouldn't be to hard to guess it was Italian. If given 6+ hours in a decanter before consumption starts, this wine will show its high quality wine making. I would go so far as to suggest opening this at breakfast so it will be ready for dinner. Very impressive and may still have a point or two of upside.
