    March 1, 2019 - 8hr decant. Wine still has many years to go. robust and round red cherry fruit.

    January 19, 2019 - 8th Annual Holiday Dinner and Cellar Raid - A Month Late (Naperville, IL): Part of wine dinner and cellar raid so did not take detailed notes. Classic Barolo aromas and I recall tar and raisins, with a strong finish and mouthfeel

    December 4, 2018 - Fabulous nose of tar, dark fruit and aromatic fireworks. Jarring acidity however put this out of balance. Not sure if it will come together. Tannin is well resolved.

    October 27, 2018 - This was fine, though not amazing. I had them upright for three weeks. Then double decanted in the morning through a coffee filter. A bit raisiny, with some strong acidity. After a few hours drinking it got slightly better. But nothing earth shattering. Good and pleasant.

    (Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Cicala) Focused roasted meat and sage nose (also reminiscent of what Renee termed "wet dog," e.g., my old terrier right after a bath); rich, concentrated, tart red fruit and juniper berry with high acidity; medium-plus finish
