Warm nose with chocolate notes, clove, nutmeg, and coffee. Hazelnut brownie; earthy mushroom. Tart raspberry surprise inside, with licorice, cedar, bitter arabica and sharp tobacco notes, rosemary, tart bing and rich, ripe black cherry. Oak adding cinnamon and a ghost of vanilla. Peppercorn.

Raisiny and grape-y nose offers tart and powdered candy notes, white mushroom, schist, light pepper and tea. Dry open of grape-y tartness, bing cherry and lavender petal. Mouth-coating with cranberry-blackberry and black currant, bitters and dates. Great priced ripasso.

Star bright yellow. Enticing nose of citrus rind and waxy marzipan. Zingy firm acidity from entry to finish wrapped in medium full body and layers of lemon, lemon rind, lemongrass, and new white flowers. That traditional “pop” of lemon in the finish tells me that the 2020 vintage is back from the watery depths that 2019 wrought. Seafood (white flesh fish especially), salads, poached chicken, soft cheeses, or even light cream sauces will shine in combination. It would make a refreshing sipper on a moderately arm day as well. Drink now through 2022. — 7 months ago
