    January 2, 2021 - PnD let air for 2hrs.

    Clear deep garnet.

    Clean. Medium intensity with aromas of cherry porcini tar violets and blackberry purée.

    Dry. Medium(+) alcohol. Medium(+) tannins. Medium(+) acidity. Medium(+) body. Medium intensity with flavour of Bing cherry porcini blackberry and amaro.

    Medium finish. Very good. Drink now and over the next five years. Interesting intense lacks a bit in the mid-palate. Austere finish

    September 5, 2020 - Really enjoyed this found it much smoother than Luigi Einaudi Dolcetto. Slight sweetness to the wine, blueberries. Served from fridge belie room temp.

    April 10, 2020 - I’m finding this hard to describe. Non descript on the nose, for me, but a soft texture and taste which is non descriptive but actually very pleasant.
    I drank this with sardines from the bbq so my taste may have been overpowered. I’m thinking that my inability to describe wine may not necessarily mean a poor wine.

    January 21, 2020 - Coming down from a cold so my nose wasn't at 100%- still detected nice blue/purple fruit scents with a slightly bitter quality, and very subtle black olive which blew off quickly. Palate is a flood of ripe, warming purple fruit, violet liqueur, laser-like acidity, and very mild chalky tannins which only show up toward the finish. Feels very "clean" and fresh. Lovely, and great QPR at $16. Not complex but very pure.
