Another case of Rorick doing big, rich, and soft, at lower alcohol, while maintaining freshness and minerality. I'd put this against any top white from anywhere in the world. Texture like a bigger burgundy or norther Rhone. 2010. — 4 days ago
Reached for this bottle for a dinner of wild game after the Barolo originally selected was corked, forgot how good Brunello is...bright, lots of black fruits, juicy, leather, firm structure, just right. Will be stocking up on Brunello for the cellar. — 10 days ago
About five bottles worth of flavor in one bottle of wine. This one is a mind-blower--needs a small party to finish, like a bottle of port--contains the entire flavor spectrum of cab franc, from vegetal to pruney, and everything in between. Thick like syrup, high alcohol. Somehow manages to be balanced though, maybe it's a Jedi mind trick. — 10 days ago
2001. We bought a few cases way back when to celebrate our 2003 release, discovered a few bottles in the library, has aged beautifully, can't forget about the delicious sparkling in our own backyard. — 11 days ago
