    October 17, 2019 - With some decanting (1-2 hrs) this is in a pretty good place right now, silky smooth

    August 20, 2019 - BYO with the parents (Chez Bruce): Just a delicious bottle of wine - consensus WOTN. And yet not a typical Nebbiolo - very full-bodied and viscous, like a Bordeaux from a hot year, albeit with tar and leather rather than cassis and cigar box. Took time to open up - we had around a one hour decant and it continued to improve until the final sip, with increasing sweet cherry fruit towards the end of the glass.

    March 6, 2019 - Cork is fully saturated as of 3/6/2019--tasted one other bottle about two months ago where the cork was also fully saturated.

    The wine started off pretty one-dimensional. Leathery with bright notes of berries and a mineral aftertaste. Still pretty heavy on the alcohol, so we let the bottle breathe.

    After an hour, the nose switched to jam, tobacco, and melon. More tobacco on tasting with earth coming through. Berries deepened and sweetened--raspberry and cherry are my best guesses, with a little bit of melon like the nose. Long finish, ending with a nice chalky-minerality. Very nice wine with some more life left in it, so long as the cork holds out!
