    September 25, 2020 - This is beautifully aged and in its prime drinking window from my perspective. Notes of dried flowers, some dried fruits, menthol, some mint, also some dark fruit, some tar, graphite and tobacco. It‘s medium-full bodied, with still medium-high acidity and medium+ tannin that is still present and a touch drying. Good length. A nicely aged Pajè and this will still provide a lot of joy over the next 10 years or so. I like the freshness here.

    June 28, 2020 - The 2004 Produttori Riservas: Asili wins by a nose (Magnum Society, Wellington, New Zealand): Served single blind. Picked as clearly the Pajè. A lighter ruby colour with a little garnet. A bouquet of tilled earth, red cherry and preserved red fruit, with a touch of tar and meaty and pretty, floral components. Also, some Marmite, showing signs of development and oxidation. In the mouth, charming and lighter bodied than the other wines. Some tasters had the Pajè as lacking depth and weight. Savoury, earthy and meaty. Also some dark chocolate and Marmite. Attractive, vibrant acidity, I really liked. Judged on palate, the most evolved wine in the lineup. The tannins well integrated and softened, although some found them a little drying on the relatively short finish. Overall, an attractive, enjoyable entry level wine, there for drinking soon. My rating 7/7, group rating 6/7.

    January 23, 2020 - This didn’t quite feel right. Probably a bottle that wasn’t stored well. Drinkable, but I suspect slight heat damage.

    October 26, 2019 - This bottle was fully mature aromatically, with tertiary notes such as rusty iron, spicebox, dried porcini, and old boat-house. Yet on the palate it still has a lot of verve and energy, with mineral salinity on the finish. So, in a great spot on the development curve.

    May 24, 2019 - Nice, mature and lovely Paje with a solid backbone.

    Aroma: licorice, tar, tobacco, moist forest floor,
    Full-bodied- with very good acid and firm and gripping tannins. Nice fruit concentration.
    Excellent length with a hint of sweetness in the finish.

    In a great place right now.
