    January 23, 2021 - The wine is in a good spot right now. Nice depth of flavours. Aromas are a touch vague. Flavours of dried berries, tar, black tea. Not too bitter, some sweet berry flavours still kicking around. Dry and dusty tannins. Nice balance overall. Enjoying this bottle.

    November 24, 2019 - Decanted about 2 hours. Medium to dark garnet core. Primary nose of sweet plum, spice, licorice and even some burnt orange rind, showing no age. Unlike the 2005 (tasted earlier today), I would have had difficulty identifying this as Nebbiolo. Dry, with balanced acidity and a relatively modest amount of soft tannins. This tastes considerably younger, fresher and brighter than the 2005. The acidity and tannins are not as noticeable, and there is a boatload of ripe fruit upfront. This strikes me as having a much more promising future than the 2005, and while it is not particularly interesting to drink now (compared to the much more evolved 2005), I would definitely hold these for a few more years.

    July 25, 2019 - Dark purple hue, nose of dark stewed fruits, some crushed rock, forest floor and herbs. Soft, lush and brooding- fully body and silky texture. Continues to develop after an hour+ in the decanter. Would give this 2 - 5 years more in the bottle to truly develop. Smoked meat, leather and a hint of sweet toasted oak. Needed another hour to decant.

    April 15, 2017 - Drank with A at Dalto. Delicious with good dark fruits and noticeable but smooth tannins.
