This is really coming into its stride - at 10 years, it’s developed all those lovely dusty secondary and tertiary characteristics of a Barolo- nose of sandalwood and memories of old leather sofa filled rooms, the colour has softened to an orangey-pink, the palate is all allusions to summers past - candied fruit, dried flowers, fennel and licorice, I could drink this every day and not feel like I was missing out on much. $67 at Halifax Port — 2 days ago
Fun guy. Still some life left. Not nearly as complex as the older Barolos obviously but at a fraction of price. Cork was safe 🤙🏻 — a month ago
Mossy, still showing some rich red fruit / lots of earth, not much structure / still a deep, thoughtful wine — a month ago

Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee and this was a special treat as not only was Weston from Montagu Wines in attendance, but Jason Moore, owner and winemaker for Modus Operandi Wines out of Napa. Blind format as always. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert.
En mag. Firing on all cylinders. My guess was left bank Bordeaux based on color (still fairly dark) and tannic structure. Lots of blackberries, cassis, and herbal dominant notes. More full-bodied than red #1. — 4 months ago
