    November 6, 2019 - Fine spicy dark fruit, minerals. Love it!

    August 9, 2019 - Solid. Still has some tannin to lose, but good potential. 5 more seems about right.

    October 5, 2018 - Beautiful nose of cherry cola and licorice. Juicy cherry with big tannins and good acidity. Body lacked the depth, but this wine is still so young. Another 5-10 years and I’m sure this would be amazing.

    March 1, 2018 - Great structure. Opens in about 45 minutes with balance of fruit and tannins. I'd bet it will be even better in 5 years,

    January 27, 2017 - Firm Nebbiolo aromas. Firm, tart and tight in the mouth, with high acidity. A bit low concentration? Still young.
