    September 27, 2019 - At Minerva’s. Thanks MB

    Lots of fruit with leather tobacco and a nice touch of prune. Silky finish.

    August 8, 2019 - Still rough around the edges if you don’t give it some air. A quick decant is definitely appreciated with this wine. After some air, you get a great amalgam of cherries and earth, wood and acid. Short finish. Good on its own, but really needs some food to shine—meat and cheese plate in this instance.

    July 5, 2019 - Red brick. Cherries and leather. A few minutes in a decanter made a world of difference.

    April 19, 2019 - The acidity from the Lemon and balsamic vinegar sauce in my pasta caprese with Grilled Lemon Chicken muted this somewhat but held up nicely and drinking well and tasted great after dinner. Not much length on the finish.

    April 4, 2019 - Nobody complained about this with a hearty pasta dish with short rib and sausage ragu. Maybe a bit rounder and fleshier that it would be for a perfect red sauce pairing, but it worked well and didn't make a fuss. A half glass remaining after dinner drank well too.
