    February 6, 2019 - Pop and pour. Smoothly rustic. ripe Aglianico with the pizza-herb notes found in some Chiantis but very round fruit on the palate. Nice little wine from Garagiste but not really a bargain at $50.

    January 27, 2019 - Not a focused tasting, but here are some thoughts from the table: Coffee, chocolate, dried cranberries, saladitos, white pepper, blueberries, ketchup; degraded tannins, concentrated salty tomato, mapo tofu, umami, corroded battery; good now but better in 10 years, excellent with Amy’s brownies.

    January 12, 2019 - Not thrilled, seemed heavily extracted and a bit pruney. Possibly a cooked bottle as the fruits seemed slightly stewed.

    January 8, 2019 - Tasted double-blind. Distinctive savory elements stood out on the bouquet and palate. Mincemeat, truffle, sous-bois, and smokehouse, for example, along with smoking sweet pipe tobacco and black farm soil. All these elements convey a sense of density. For whatever reason, on this day, or with this bottle, I did not find ash and white pepper, which would have put my mind to volcanic provenance. Also noteworthy, by Aglianico standards, even at 80 percent of the blend, this is not a particularly tannic wine. Rather the savory essences and textural weight suggest a south of France blend, particularly Syrah based, such as many Minervois La Livinière offerings. Still evolving and also strikingly approachable, likely on account of overall ripeness. For this reason, I would not hold bottles beyond 2025-2028. Interesting and delicious! 92-93.
