    April 27, 2014 - Perhaps not as silky as its Italian relatives, this still impressive nebbiolo stands on its own as it carries smoke and blueberries on the aroma, firm tannins on the palate with a nice balance of acidity. Drinking well in 2014.

    September 24, 2012 - Good nebbiolo fruit on the nose. Definitely a ripe vintage, but this bottle has a lot of depth going for it, with deep fruitiness, a good dry backbone, and a bit of peat.

    December 17, 2010 - Darker ruby color with light rim. Nose: rich black cherry and boysenberry fruit with licorice, leather, rose petals, and dusty old cedar. Medium body on the palate: again the intense high-toned black cherry and boysenberry framed by licorice and dried herbs (Ricola?) as well as espresso and dry earth. Bright, juicy acidity. Moderate dusty tannins. Lingering dried herbs, earth, and some graphite on the moderate/long finish. Beautiful expression of Nebbiolo. Drinking well now. Extremely impressed with this estate overall.

    October 24, 2010 - Nice fruity nose, but taste is too ripe for me. Overpowering ripeness eliminates most other features this wine usually has either in earlier 2003 bottles and other vintages. Not sure if it is just this bottle or something that's happened to the vintage at this point.

    June 12, 2010 - Significantly better than the recent bottle. Rather than the soft ripe development of that earlier bottle, this one is pretty tightly wound and wonderful. Nose has rich mown grass and floral notes. The palate is earthy,full of nebbiolo fruit with good acid backbone with light tannins, and it is all well-balanced across the entire taste. I'm going to move its due date from 2011 to 2012.
