Community Tasting Notes 8

    March 3, 2019 - Well, this clearly needed more than the 2 hour decant I gave it. Shows some tar and floral elements and a red fruited core, but it is pretty cloaked by structure still. Sound and correct, and popped a good bit with my lamb schwarma and duck fat fries and truffle mayo. However, still didn't hit the heights. Long, powerful, drying finish. For me, this needs way longer decant and just more time. Or perhaps, it's just not a winner in '99. Saved half bottle for night two, will see what we get.

    May 8, 2017 - Decanted and enjoyed over several hours. Darker fruit profile with a distinct tar and dark fruit character. Big tannins on the palate but fruit holds on strong. Very good and should get better. Enjoyable with food.

    January 16, 2016 - A decent Barolo but I was expecting more.

    November 14, 2015 - An evening of Barolo and screening of The Barolo Boys (Old World Deli, Bellingham, WA): Initially the most reticent and austere of the initial lineup. As the evening progressed, this bottle noticeably opened up. More traditional in style than the Cavallotto preceding it, with a step up in acidity, and coarser tannins. Somewhat challenging for those not accustomed to the traditional style but nonetheless readily enjoyed by everyone this evening.

    August 1, 2015 - Traditional Barolo. Not as complex as the 01.
