    June 11, 2019 - Gorgeous, integrated and velvety mouthfeel. Black currant, cherry, spice box. Lovely wine and shows why this wine is so coveted. Wish I had more

    May 24, 2019 - Rich and can certainly be enjoyed but too much acidic lime .... why am I the only one that gets lime sometimes in reds? I must have said that 20+ times in 1500 reviews. Maybe others call it limestone, that's so much more intellectual.

    March 23, 2019 - Drinking perfectly right now. Strong nose of red fruit and cassis. Very long finish that is like velvet.

    February 28, 2019 - Stunning, stunning, stunning, stunning......brief decant and consumed alongside Bordeaux from 2000. This was the WOTN - and it wasn't even close. What else to say?

    (Ornellaia (Bolgheri)) A very dense hue to this young wine. The nose corroborates, with an offering of dense, dark, backward fruit, in a pure, confit style. The palate, however, has a very pure style; full, ripe and structured, with fine fruit, splendid balancing acidity and a huge depth of substance. Here is a true grand vin. A great wine with huge potential, desperately in need of cellar time, perhaps 7-9 years.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Ornellaia) Upon opening had a beautiful nose of pure ripe berry and cassis fruit. Layered and focused on the nose. A young pup. Tight and unyielding in the mouth. This was at 6:00 PM. As I sit here now a transformation has begun. The nose has sweet tobacco, earth, mineral, brambly blackberries and some cassis fruit. Very Bordeaux-like. The palate is focused and almost pointy with lush tannin-laced red fruits. Soft and very concentrated in the mouth with just so much baby fat fruit. Fine grainy-like tannins and a long finish. Clearly too young but a great Ornellaia with a nice future. If I had one complaint there was some heat that still has not gone away.
