    February 15, 2020 - Leathery nose, dry and fruity palate – red and black berries with a touch of sweetness into the finish.

    December 15, 2018 - Gorgeous wine. It opens to a deep, penetrating, leathery bouquet of cherries, cassis, and red currants atop foresty earth, pencil shavings, petrichor, and smoke. The palate is plush, vinous, and elegant, with serious structure and a dry yet juicy tension that frames a beautiful harmony between fruit and umami elements. Brambly spice and youthful tannin grip the long and savory finish. Outstanding, Old World wine with the bones to last. 93+

    February 3, 2018 - This has changed since our last bottle. Has a woodsy/smoky thing going on in the background. Still a nice blend, but it seems to be heading toward an end point.

    January 13, 2018 - Plum and Black fruits and integrated, smooth tannin. Long on aftertaste with slight cocoa and vanilla. Slight smokey also on aftertaste. Execllent wine

    January 10, 2017 - Been holding on to this for some time now. Had it over the last few days and it was wonderful. Complex flavors and a lingering finish. Excellent with the Eye-round stuffed with a pepperoni that we had Sunday. Pasta with red onions, cooked with the Eye-round so the 'sauce' is basically cooked-down red onions with meat flavoring. Grated Romano cheese and you are ready to go. A family favorite for generations and this wine complemented it well.
