    April 5, 2020 - This is in a good spot right now. Deep color with some bricking at the edge. Classic with dried rose petals, dried Montgomery cherry and a hint of tar. Just a hint of reduction that required some time to blow off. On the nose just a hint of volatility that added complexity. Excellent palate coverage with good sap to the middle. Bright acidity kept the palate vibrant and stretched out the finish. The tannins were still slightly unresolved on the finish but i liked the balance of the fruit and freshness. Had this with bolognese which was a perfect match to the tannin structure on the finish.

    July 25, 2017 - Tuesday Night Double Blind <$40 (Alpharetta, GA): Dark core with crimson rim; cedar, celery seed, dark dried cherry, roses, balm; juicy acid, sweet Nebbiolo based fruit; delicious, called Aldo Conterno; a very nice showing for this wine which I've had a bunch of, a great value from this vintage, some off bottles but this was great.

    July 2, 2017 - Opened and let breathe in the bottle for 2 hours. Drank over the next 3. Really enjoyable. Good level of tannin and acidity to hold the wine together. Have one more left and will stash it in the back of the cellar for 5-10 years. Very nice wine right now. Should improve with time.

    April 11, 2016 - Needed a little bit of time ~60 mins seemed to be about right. Tons of tannin but mostly well integrated at this point. One bottle left but will try and lay off for a while to see if this can improve a little more.
