    November 26, 2022 - This is much better than 15/16, more balanced, less fruity aftertaste.

    June 30, 2022 - Solid. Pop n pour as it was a bit into the night. Nicely structured and surely can cellar for many more years.

    April 26, 2022 - Molto Bene Nota Bene! (Vino Loco & Lolo's Seaside Tasting Lodge): Part of an eight vintage vertical tasting. This wowed at the first sniff. Not big and juicy, not severe and oaky. It was measured with dark red and black fruit - creme de cassis and mission figs with liquorice and mint. very good complexity on the palate. There is a touch of oaky vanilla but its carried along on superfine tannins, integrated acid and alcohol, medium plus body. Longest finish of the eight Nota Benes for me. Vino Loco referred to this one as the Aristocrat Wine of the evening - "old world cues, complexity and potential. This was my top wine of the tasting and tied for second with the 2013 and only bested by the 2015.

    April 14, 2021 - As a rule, I typically don’t open a Nota Bene until at least 5 years after vintage. They seem to need the time to integrate, smooth out the sharp corners. However, after KillerJones’ recent TN we had to open one. KJ nailed it, it’s deliriously good. It’s the right mix of fruit-forward meets rustic. The savoury depth beneath the dark red & blue fruits is remarkable. Great length. I don’t know if this is going to necessarily improve much 4-5 years out but our remaining stash will probably be depleted way before then. I’m looking for more!
