    September 19, 2019 - Pop and pour. Needs 30 minutes to open up. Fruity but also borderline musty and restrained at the same time. Moderate acidity and characteristically plush and round on the finish. Definitely food wine and needing a few years. Just not something I could easily just throw back. Beautiful black/purple color though.

    July 26, 2019 - This does not show the fruity, quaffable nature of high-acid Barbera but it's authentic to the grape I think with a lovely intensity of fresh red fruits and a very fine texture. Finishes smooth and complex with perfect balance and it's really a well-made wine. Duh!

    July 4, 2019 - For Barbera, this is a tour de force in subtlety and grace, yet with beautiful & satisfying fruit. Delicious.

    April 12, 2019 - No decant. Drank over two nights. Big and bold. Still young and needs time to mellow. Much better second night. Has a long life ahead of it.

    March 24, 2019 - Dark purple red; pleasant subtle dark notes; smooth, some licorice, a bit of black pepper, pleasantly rounded with a mild bite; very likeable
