    November 28, 2019 - Not much as changed in the last two months, but had an opportunity to open a little sooner so it was delicious right from the get go.

    I would put this up against any super Tuscan out there and it a fraction of the price.

    November 16, 2019 - This was my 4th bottle and I will need to find another. If you like Bordeaux style Italian blends, this is your honeysuckle. A beautifully structured and layered wine with cassis, pepper, leather, and dark fruits. Nice finish, paired perfectly with sausage and cheeses, as well as a meaty fettuccine bolognese.

    October 25, 2019 - Needed an Hour decant; mix of dark and red berries in the nose; on the palate cherry too; high alcohol is welk integrated; Long finish; Should Even Improve over the next 2-3 years

    September 17, 2019 - Great nose; fruit & spicy.

    This was PnP. Took a little time in the glass to open up. Once it did it was seamless. The fruit is still present (I got blueberry mostly) but meat, spice, cedar and leather are all there too. Balanced, with fine tannins giving a smooth and elegant feel in the mouth. The finish went on for decent amount of time.
    Wished I had a chance to open sooner or at least given it a quick decant. Thankfully we have two more bottles.

    February 8, 2019 - Damn. In Mumbai. Wine starved so this is a treat. In the glass it’s dark, looks ripe. Lovely nose. Dark fruits on the nose, but of blueberry creme. Full bodied on the P&P. Tight. Balanced. Lingering forever. Smoky cherry fruit.
