    March 11, 2017 - Wow, was this a surprise. Afraid this might be over the hill, it wasn't in any danger. Could've competed with a lot of Amarones, but wasn't too overripe. Just in a beautiful spot with great fruit and still some definition holding it all together.

    August 31, 2014 - Juicy raspberry, some leaves, good acid. Not that interesting given the expectations from Rimmerman on this one. Although I do agree that it has an elegance and lightness to it that most Ripasso wines don't have.

    With air this is opening up and gaining some complexity - straw, earth, rock. Still quite juicy, but it's got more personality - rather akin to a youngish Harvest Moon Zinfandel, of all things.

    February 15, 2013 - What is corvina? Garagiste says this is 'Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot’ but I really don’t taste any of those. What I do taste is a light, fruity relatively high-acid wine that goes down real nice!

    This bottle is better than the last, so

    Hold for >= 2014

    February 15, 2013 - gorgeous nose with hints of earth and tobacco, but only fine on the palate. at the price point, it's a rare rimmerman miss.
