Very enjoyable, somewhat contemplative, and very representative of both terroir and onstage. I thought this was past peak, the. Then Again it is drinking better than the one that I than the one I opened 9 months ago, so what do I know?
Evocative nose to me screams ANDERSON VALLEY with classic dark cherry fruit along with blue and black fruits, all encased in sandalwood. Forest floor after the rain, but also the sanguine, meaty notes that I would associate with Willamette valley and particularly Dundee hills) and sanguine meaty notes of many Willamette valley wines). Bay leaf, and also an herbaceous top note I can’t place. Maybe tarragon? Dark and even ranging into amaro territory, but not rustic or brooding. There is great clarity to the fruit and the seamless integration of the exotic wood creates something noble and fine. Structure is there, with a nice big but clean mouthfeel and medium acidity that is palate cleansing more like a sip of water than a beauty peel. Not a ton of length. There and gone, but what a performance!
Also happy (relieved ?) to see you notes consistent over time

One of the best Amaros I've ever had. Found it very accidentally in Rome at Cafe Ferrara Aug 2018. An amazing meal also found by accident. They let me buy a btl to take home wo their restaurant markup. Have yet to see it anywhere in the US since. Made it last a while but had to take down the last few sips before the move. Dark orange pith, amazingly balanced bitterness with the perfect amount of sweetness. Waaaay over delivering! — 3 months ago
