    November 5, 2017 - I thought this was lovely. Took about 45 minutes to open up, but the palate was elegant and floral. Gorgeous dark fruit accompanies the floral notes and the tannins were soft and relaxed.

    December 22, 2008 - Bright berries, floral notes and cinnamon on the nose -- big. The taste is tart, strongly fruity, with dark berries, good acidity, light tannins near the end. Nicely balanced all around. Although I had set this down as a wine to drink by end of 08, and I'm drinking the last bottle, I see now it could have gone on for some more time. Probably easily a year or two more.

    October 28, 2008 - High toned, with some florals and red fruits and cinnamon spices in the nose. In the mouth the fruit is dominated by the structure, first the sharp acids then a wave of tannin. My guess is this could use a few more years based on the structure, but don't know if the fruit is concentrated enough for extended aging. It is very enjoyable at the moment. Great with pasta topped with sage/brown butter sauce, and good with grilled NY strip.

    August 29, 2008 - Stunning nose that just blows out of the bottle -- full of flower and strong berry aroma. The color is lighter than a barolo. The palate is rich with an explosion of raspberries and nebbiolo fruit, with wonderful acidity and modest tannins. Lovely balance all around.
