    February 28, 2016 - 3/5 - Great barbaresco nose, medium bodied, flavours didnt live up to the nose. May be a little past its prime, but was still nice.

    December 10, 2010 - very un-impressed - flat - weak - I could only wish to figure how to call this a flawed bottle - then I could return for refund -- 1 left in cellar

    March 30, 2010 - some compare to Pinot Noir --it seems more akin to Beaujolais ( Gamay ) - have 2 more -- will cellar longer and see how they evolve --at this point leaves me unimpressed.

    June 11, 2009 - Consistent across multiple bottles, this wine is a nice expression of Nebbiolo. Pale medium-garnet in colour, it has pretty aromas of roses, alcohol, cherries, and sliced red plums. Light-medium bodied, this needs time to open up. Initially it's quite tart and tannic, but with several hours of air it starts to express itself more, showing more body and complexity, with cherries, mushroom, orange peel, and red plum notes. Short-moderate finish, ~20s. I've buried 6 bottles each of the 2003, 2004, and 2005 in the cellar and will revisit them once they start to hit 10 years of age. With time, I expect this to be an excellent value-priced Barbaresco (the aforementioned vintages ranged from $22-24 CAD) true to varietal expression.

    May 1, 2009 - This is an interesting wine. If I had to guess I would say pinot noir both in color and taste. I am wondering if my bottle is a bit oxidized - will have to try some more.
