    February 1, 2020 - Q1 Wine Club - Aged Barbaresco (The Apt): Wine #9: Another one of my favorites of the tasting and the wine that ended up winning the whole event. This definitely has age but also some of that freshness. Lots of dried fruit and potpourri coming through. It had been opened and decanted and clearly drank well from there. (8 pennies)

    August 31, 2017 - Quite a bit of equine action on the nose with a freshly polished leather saddle thrown in for good measure. It is sweet and vinous at its heart with all sorts of chestnut and meaty savoury nuance. It has good depth and a finish that is dry. Flavours linger.
