  • My note from a year ago holds. This hasn’t changed much.

  • Tasted over 2 hrs and day 2, obnoxiously heavy bottle
    -opaque dark red
    -expressive juicy ripe plum boysenberry, wet stone minerality
    -med/med- acidity, med/med+ weight soft but not plush low profile one dimensional berry fruit, med dusty tannins; a bit more open knit dark fruit and still going strong on day 2
    -well-made substantial but simple mountain wine, maybe gets better with a few more years, the heavy bottle is off-putting

  • Single vineyard, 100% Teroldego, 2.5 ha, 8 months on the skins in amphora, 12.5% ABV. Uncompromising. Pure and linear, fruit and sandy minerality, all drive and energy, fresh and vigorous, ever so slightly dusty, firm skin tannins, tight and long. At restaurant Marius, Amsterdam, NL.

  • Reductive early. Dark fruit up front. Fine, substantial tannin but not really a lot. Tart acidity. It sticks out like you sometimes see in certain California wines where the tartaric wasn't handled carefully. It gives the wine a two note punch. The fruit up front is dark, and reserved but doesn't really have depth. So it's kind of a one note. That fades and then you get smacked by the tartness. It's like a clumsy Petit Sirah. This also drank like something that saw no wood for those that like to note such things. A couple nights better that fruit to acidity thing and come together decently. The tartness was still notable but it drifted out from the fruit rather than popping up after the fruit had done it's thing. OK wine. Possibly better with time. I don't think the complexity is here for any great development though. Pricey for what it is. Notable in that it comes in one of those heavier than average Pinot/Syrah shaped bottles with a wax top.
