    January 16, 2018 - - Ruby color with slow forming legs and aromas of cedar, raspberry, black pepper and cherry. It's balanced and has flavours of cherry, raspberry and black pepper with a full body. Round texture with a long finish - Decanted one hour. Rich wine with a great finish. The Aglianico is truly showcased here by Caparone. Deep crushed red fruit finish.

    January 23, 2017 - Mostly Paso but some other interesting stuff (Scott & Jo's): My first time hearing of or trying this winery. I am told this cost about $15 at the winery which is a great value. A very interesting take. I love Aglianico but most (from Italy) are way too tart and need to be drunk immediately or need a very long time in the cellar - twenty years is not a lot even for a $20 wine. This was a bit different. To start with, the color is ruby and transparent. Not the purple of Agianico del Vulture for example. Then the nose is very dusty. It comes across not too unlike a good but inexpensive Bordeaux. There is also a nice cherry component and hints of cigar. On the palate, this is not super ripe. Nice cherries and bit of black currants. Good balance. Great with a Squash soup with crystallized ginger. Is it an awesome wine? No. But it is really good and just a perfect wine for how it was used. And at $15, I could drink this anytime.
