2017 New York Wine Experience Trip; 10/16/2017-10/25/2017 (New York City, NY): Despite being quite overpriced on a New York City restaurant's wine list and mishandled by the sommelier, this Barolo is still a joy to drink. Deep ruby and flush with earthy black cherry on the nose, it adds notes of tarragon, cardamom and tobacco. Medium-bodied, freshly acidic, lightly oaked and with nicely integrated alcohol (listed as 14%), it delivers flavors mirroring the nose and closes with good length. Unfortunately, sampling of this wine was cut significantly short because the sommelier, despite decantation, did not take the time to actually separate the wine from its sediment. At least 20% of this overpriced bottle was wasted, tainted by bitter, visible sediment. Assuming that the server of this wine observes basic decanting skills, it should show well for several more years. Drink now-2022.

Just a super wine, you can smell this from across the room. Still young, there is volume, complexity, intensity, layers of fruits, silky tannins and a finish that does quit until the layers of fruit have done their job. This is a stunner. Because it is so good, you can drink it young, but if you have the patience to wait another decade, this will really be a knock out!
