    December 30, 2021 - Gotta say I was skeptical when I pulled this out of my cellar as I thought it might be past its prime. But it really was in prime shape - a very pretty ruby red glossy in the glass with a clear rim. Nose has some smoked elements and tobacco. Fruit has nice aged component with raisins, currants and some spice. Nice long savory finish with good acidity. In prime window. Complex for a wine at this price point.

    February 25, 2021 - Very dark purple. Licorice, plum and flowers on the nose. Medium to full body. The mouthfeel was tannic on the 1st day; it's much more rounded and well integrated on the 2nd day. Notes of blackberry, boysenberry and dark fruit with long finish. My wife and I were divided about this wine on the 1st night; we both love it on the 2nd night.

    February 12, 2021 - Rich complex flavors of dark red fruit, including ripe cherry, plum and raspberry with a backbone of ripe tannins, balanced by nice residual acid from the Sangiovese component and a long long finish. A bit overwhelming for marinara based pasta but excellent overall

    November 16, 2020 - Still drinking well, but I would finish this vintage if you have more. Very smooth and dry, but the fruit has begun to fade.

    June 2, 2020 - Unfortunately, this one is now past its prime - nose and palate are muted; balanced but now unremarkable.
