    December 25, 2019 - Beautiful with Christmas dinner. Well balanced, but still showing plenty of tannins. Really enjoyable right now, but this has years ....

    August 25, 2019 - Quite blood red (brown tinged) in the glass. My first thought was a touch worried but Barbaresco is always quite light in colour. Lovely fruit driven Nebbiolo nose, sweet cherry and a touch of violets. Feels mature but maybe it can develop further? Honestly for me why wait- it’s fantastic now. That said, it gathered weight over two days, tannins not even worth mentioning.

    June 28, 2019 - Tasty but still a little tight. Tannins prominent even after being open for 3 hours. Ok but not that generous for a wine with this much bottle age.

    May 15, 2018 - Tons of fruit on the nose - black cherries, sour cherries, tar, licorice, sweet cream and pine needles. Sour cherries in front - not completely in balance but still an interesting wine with layered flavors. Finishes with a touch of spice and some chewiness. Very enjoyable.

    February 7, 2018 - Dark and brooding w/ tree bark, cocoa, raisins and spice. Fantastic for the price. Still needs time to soften and integrate. Recommend decanting for several hours or keeping in bottle for 2 - 3 years. Very pleasant - black cherry, campfire and spice with a bit of astringency on the finish. Would love to re-taste in several years.
