    June 28, 2019 - The 2010 Usseglio has everything I associate with CdP from distinct dark fruits to a variety of fragrant spices and well balanced tannins. The wine was opened about 2 hours before we drank it with a hearty Italian meal that the wine easily overpowered and became the focal point of discussion during the meal. I hesitate to give any wine a 100 point score, but this is that good.

    March 29, 2019 - Enjoyed with main course of dinner. Cigar box and ash with aged black cherry profile. Enters with a slight mint character. Ample weight as well. Complex as can be. Middle shows plum, figs, dates. Finished more round and supple. Tannins are rather soft at this point but I think this could go another 7 to 10 years or so.

    March 17, 2019 - P&P - and full disclosure, I had quite a bit of pre dinner festivities so not in the best frame of mind for a detailing the wine. That said, this was big, complex, and well enjoyed at theTornardo Steakhouse in Madison WI.

    January 1, 2019 - Tonight.....buzzkill....this bottle is stewed fruit.....it’s lively fruit is dulled and buried behind a cooked stewed flavor..then gripping tannins take over and dry the mouth with a decent raspberry choc profile..
    Have to think this bottle is off....others were great

    (Didn’t decant first..pnp...maybe that’s the difference?)

    December 23, 2018 - Tonight it is just plain deliciousness...Sous vide duck breast crisped
    With port orange reduction... slow roasted duck fat potatoes and
    celery root apple purée
    So with that as a backdrop....wine is a burst of blue/black fruit
    With the acidity and minerality and complexity of stone and fruit and terroir that is just exquisite!!
    What a dinner, what a wine!,
