Has held up well. Excellent fruit and balance
  • NoWineWiz commented:

    6/27/19, 2:24 PM - Hi Thurashe - I'm confused. Based on your very positive review and the fact that you "Like this wine", how does it end up with a 79 rating? Is that a typo?

  • NoWineWiz commented:

    7/1/19, 12:07 PM - No worries Thurashe, thanks for the update and response! I'm excited to open my bottle. I continually worry that I am holding onto bottles too long, even though they are stored well.

Encore assez dense et extrait, confituré et presque syrupeux.
C'est simple et soyeux, facile et un brin sucré.
Long avec un peu de chauffe, un verre est presqu'un repas.
Je suis ailleurs!
  • NoWineWiz commented:

    3/20/19, 5:14 PM - "Still quite dense and extracted, jammy and almost syrupy. It's simple and silky, easy and a bit sweet. Long with a little heating, a glass is almost a meal. I'm away!"

Très beau vin, encore beaucoup de fruits. Nez écurie, terre. Beaucoup d arômes. En bouche, tout est en rondeur, très ample et de belle longueur. Beaucoup de fraîcheur Excellent
  • NoWineWiz commented:

Bien bon, belle longueur.
Assez complexe, belle bouche ronde et bon fruité.
Carafe à aider un peu, un petit 30 minutes ne nuit pas.
RQP ***1/2 (compte tenu du prix relativement élevé)
À boire d'ici 2019 maximum (pas de grand bénéfice à le garder beaucoup plus longtemps selon moi).
  • NoWineWiz commented:

    2/3/19, 5:33 PM - "Good, good length.
    Pretty complex, beautiful round mouth and good fruit.
    Carafe to help a little, a small 30 minutes does not hurt.
    RQP *** 1/2 (considering the relatively high price)
    To drink by 2019 maximum (no big benefit to keep it much longer in my opinion.)"

Une de mes premières bouteille mise dans le cellier.
Carafé une heure, il était légèrement meilleur dans ma mémoire il y a de cela quelques années.
Des fruits légèrements confiturés, bien frais et une bonne longueur.Je trouvais qu'il manquait un brin de complexité.
Beau maintenant...
  • NoWineWiz commented:

    1/24/19, 11:00 PM - "One of my first bottles put in the cellar. Decanted a hour, it was slightly better in my memory there for some years. Lightly jammy fruit, fresh and a good length. Found that it lacked a bit of complexity. Beautiful now ...
    16.5 / 20.

Really enjoyable nose and palate of dark berries, black cherry, fresh leather and sandalwood. Soft but distinct tannins and a smooth, full, medium long finish.
  • NoWineWiz commented:

    1/9/19, 5:15 PM - Thanks for the comment, that is great to hear Doc! I still have 2 more to open . . . I can't wait !

    You should add a review directly to the wine so that others see it!

Druene til denne vinen kommer fra tre vinmarker rundt Castiglione Falletto som vinifiseres hver for seg og blendes sammen før flasketapping. Vinen har en hel måned med skallkontakt før modningen skjer på de tradisjonelle store bottiene i 30 måneder før tapping.

På nesen kommer det en ytterst klassisk tradisjonell Nebbiolo-duft med sine modne kirsebær, stall, tjære, roser, samt et fint steinpreg som gir et relativt komplekst og fint aromabilde.

Vinen har som ventet bra fylde og vinen brer seg fint ut i munnen. Her er det modne, lett sødmefulle kirsebær, roser og et lett trevirke som preger vinen med sine faste piggrådaktige tanniner og fine syre. Vinen har en lang utgang også. Dette er en vin som åpenbart trenger sin tid i kjelleren, men et godt kjøp er det. 91 poeng.
  • NoWineWiz commented:

    11/13/18, 12:06 PM - "The grapes come from three vineyards around Castiglione Falletto, each of which is vinified individually and blended together before bottling. The wine has a whole month of skin contact before maturation occurs on the traditional large bottles for 30 months before tapping.

    On the nose there is an extremely classic traditional Nebbiolo scent with its mature cherry, stall, tar, roses, as well as a fine stone poem that provides a relatively complex and fine aroma.

    As expected, the wine is well filled and the wine grows well in the mouth. Here are ripe, light sweet cherries, roses and a light wood that characterizes the wine with its firm spike-like tannins and fine acid. The wine has a long output as well. This is a wine that obviously needs its time in the basement, but a bargain is it. 91 points."

Ook deze fles over 2 dagen gedronken en zelfde commentaar als vorige fles: verbetert veel op dag 2.
Donkere volle en krachtige wijn. Rijpe braam en kers, intens, warm en kruidig. Lange finale. Zeer goede P/Q

On the palate, the fruit is back, a small herbal side and strong, woody, tannins. Mild acidity, a little bitter cocoa and superb length on the blueberries, rosemary, cacao. Sick!!!!"

Mycket mörk med stark hint av kaffe. Vinet är oerhört koncentrerat och drar tankarna till en äldre salongsmiljö. Läder och lite choklad är framträdande dofter.

Oerhört kraftigt vin
  • NoWineWiz commented:

    3/11/16, 9:15 PM - Translation: Very dark with a strong hint of coffee. The wine is incredibly concentrated, and draws to mind an old salon environment. Leather and little chocolates are prominent scents.

    Extremely strongly wine.

Subtil og særs elegant. Frukt og florale toner hånd i hånd. Definitivt den yngste 1990 jeg har har vært borte i.
Fortsatt smertelig ung i munnen.
Elegant, men samtidig en fantastisk klokkeren intensitet.
Frisk, mineralsk med flott nerve.
Lang elektrisk finish.
Helt rå vin, men trenger mer tid!
En fremtidig gigant.
  • NoWineWiz commented:

    1/16/16, 1:20 PM - "Subtle and special elegance. Fruit and floral tones hand in hand. Definitely the youngest 1990 I've been had.
    Still painfully young in the mouth.
    Elegant, yet a wonderful sacristan intensity.
    Fresh, mineral with great nerve.
    Long electric finish.
    Completely raw wine, but need more time!
    A future giant."

Rouge Rubis foncé, au nez on remarque facilement la cerise avec un petit coté épicé. En Bouche, très beau fruit bien intégré, absolument merveilleux, tannins bien présent mais aucunement astringent, belle acidité, un vin très bien équilibré, super beau Zinfandel a un prix très respectable.

Nez de cassis, légèrement épicé, relish. En bouche, plein de fruit confituré, tannins serrés, boisé fin, alcool pas trop présent. Très long en bouche. Non carafé pour suivre l'évolution du vin jusqu'au lendemain où il est encore aussi bon sinon meilleur. Un exemple que la Petite Syrah peut être magnifique lorsqu'entre bonnes mains.
  • NoWineWiz commented:

    9/23/15, 10:22 AM - Translation - Nose of cassis, slightly spicy, relish. On the palate, full of fruit jam, tannins tight, wooded end, not too much alcohol. Very long in the mouth. No carafe to follow the evolution of the wine overnight where it is still as good or better. An example that the Petite Syrah can be beautiful when put in good hands.
