    December 3, 2021 - Unexpectedly found this uninventoried in the back my cellar tonight. Very youthful appearance, deep ruby core with slight garnet edges (I would have expected more garnet with browning). Highly aromatic nose showing drying rose petal, brown road tar, decaying pine needles, and wild, spicy red fruits. Fresh mouthfeel displaying dried raspberries, crushed cherries, sour cranberries, powdered cocoa, chewy old leather, and fresh forest floor. Tannin and acidity clearly lingering at the surface. Huge, very long finish…goes on for 45+ seconds. Most likely in the latter stages of development…seems, to me, to have plenty of life ahead. Drink now through 2025+. Impressive.

    October 30, 2021 - Raisiny dried fruit flavors. Grainy tannins. Lacks freshness. Not sure if that's the style or this was an off bottle.

    September 23, 2021 - Three hour double decant. Drank a small glass. A deep ruby core fading to a deep garnet outer edge. Still an absolute baby and nowhere near reaching its zenith, which will come decades from now once the structural elements soften, it gains greater complexity, and develops those wonderful tertiary characteristics ages Barolo exhibit so brilliantly. Still a pleasure to drink in its youth with ripe black fruits, crushed wild berries, vanilla-infused black cherries, tar, pine needles, and aged balsamic.
