This wine smells of a tobacco barn, just after a rain, with the wood cracking as it dries..
Smooth, silky, fruit leather, real leather, bee light and easy acids that are slightly more ahead of the chimps bits of tannins.
This wine has aged well.
and is drinking perfectly. — 12 days ago
One of our favorite wineries near Verona, this 09’ is showing well.
Full on nose of a plum - Raisin hazelnut crusted bread pudding.
Used boot leather tea, tobacco, dark, dark, lord of the rings dark, berries.
Acidic stave, lingering tones of darkness.
Wait, I mean happiness. Lusty happiness. It is an anniversary wine after all. — 6 days ago
Nose of twilight - dark fruit and leather.
Deep, dried plum, fig , prune. The acid and tannins are both big, bold, and have no issues with shyness. The finish is in your face in a full on fight club. May be a bit smoother in 5 - 10 more.. still quite good now, decanted 4 hours.

Smells of roasted jam and full on barnyard.
Hefty wine with oak laden cocoa covered fruits, classic Syrah from South America. Fresh garden vegetal and citric like acid bringing up the rear.
One should always have a bottle of this on the shelf.

Hefty bouquet of sweet bush berry flowers.
Dark crystal salt grabs my attention, pistachio, plum skin, black cherry, dark chocolate cake, caramel covered piñon.
I should have brought two of these back.
I have yet to be disappointed. — a month ago
