    September 19, 2018 - This final bottle in my cellar is great. This really is a beautiful piece of nebbiolo. Elegance of the highest order. The nose is roses and cherries and dried currants -- a pleasure. The palate is dark fruit, tobacco and good aciidity. After about 90 minutes some elegant tannins kick in and give a final kick.

    April 22, 2018 - Like the bottle I had in 2017, an excellent expression of nebbiolo, even though I normally have a problem with any oak, but Gaja handles it with finesse and finally at a reasonable price.

    December 9, 2017 - Decanted for sediment. Light to medium garnet color. Nose of mushroom consommé, with some dried cherry and woodsy notes. More earthy than fruit driven for sure. Similar flavors on the palate with a mix of earthy terroir and dried plum and balsamic notes. Good acidity with silky tannins and a nice finish. Really in a great spot right now. Wish I had bought more.

    June 3, 2017 - Roses and earth and a bit of integrated oak on the nose. Big nose. Palate has substantial fruit (raspberry/blueberry combo, tasting like neither) and menthol. Significant acidity balancing the fruit, and substantial tannins that come in after about 45 minutes. Moderate finish. Not as complex as many of Gaja's wines, but quite enjoyable. Still is youngish, lots of life.

    November 19, 2016 - Q4 - 2016 Tasting - Anything Goes Theme (New York, NY): #15 of 22 wines tasted double blind. Another mature wine on the heels of the '84 Dunn. The color is somewhat translucent with hints of browning. Higher acidity, good balance, more tertiary characteristic than fruit here - so not sure how much longer this will hold. However right now it was drinking really beautifully with a lovely finish. My call was aged Barolo again. Top quartile for me, and second quartile for the group with 7 pennies voted.
