Just delicious. Very fresh. Plums, balsamic, leather. — 10 days ago
A very fruit-forward Cabernet S. driven blend. Lots of dark, sweet, brambly fruit, with a touch of licorice and tar/black olive. Smooth & rich on the palate w/o being plush or overripe. Nice balance & precision and finely grained, juicy tannins. Lacks a bit of depth, though, plus the 14% alc are noticeable.
A nice one though, esp. with croque monsieur. — 8 days ago
A nice baby brunello, but less impressive than other rossos I have had from the producer. Maybe lacking a bit of the lift and elegance I expect from this bottling, even in such a warm vintage. Lavender and ripe red fruit. Finish is rich and, at times, a bit hot, even at 13.5%. — 24 days ago

Superb balance. A fresh, raspberry-driven nose. At Alba's, courtesy of Leo. — 2 days ago
I am sooo impressed with this. Granted, we bought and brought it right from the winery (stored in their cellar for all these years); but, for me, this has been unlike any older vintage I have had to date. It was so smooth and elegant and still so complex. It kept evolving and shifting in just the short time we spent together (from an initial nose that hinted at age to toasted almond to a hint of Port to snapped tree branches) and left me wondering who it really is—what it was in its prime—and, inevitably, wanting more. — 25 days ago
