Getting past prime.

To my taste, this is a little over-oaked. A little unbalanced on the oak side. The mouthfeel is creamy and lucious. It is a good example of a Oaked Napa Chardonnay. I preferred the DuMol, which we tasted side-by-side. The DuMol, from Sonoma, was more balanced in my opinion. Not as Oaked and a little more acidic.

Tasted with Giuseppe Vajra at Fausto at the CAC. Hart & Cru food pairing event, Cincinnati. Nov. 11, 2019.

AHHH! It was pointed out to me that this note originally rated the wine at "56". I think that was a rating-slider malfunction when I posted - or I had tasted too much wine (but how is THAT possible?). In any event, the wine is a 90. Beautiful Nebbiolo, very approachable - leaning toward Barbaresco vs. Barolo

The color is pink copper is clear and limpid. The smells are floral, mineral, honeyed notes, pear, salinity, and hints of cherry. The tastes are grapefruit, light cherry, sea salt, tart citrus, and wet stone. The finish is crisp and zingy.
