Argiano always such a jewel in great years, and this one has finally emerged from an awkward spell. Floral and dry as a bone, seamless, great purity and notes of sweet oak and sour cherry. Ready to go with a 45 min decant, years ahead though.

Hints of raisin and spice. Full and velvety mouthfeel producing a rich and long finish.

Tomato paste and coffee grinds - acid and tannins need time to integrate but couldn't resist

More restrained than the '09 but has solid bones. One for the longer haul.

Last lunch ever at Paolo's in SJ. :-( Popped and poured. Dark ruby red. Almost opaque. Vibrant in the glass. A nose of black cherry and chicory. In the mouth, it shows great intensity and evolves nicely with air. Great vino with my last pappardelle a bolognese. After 20 yrs I'll miss this.

Dense black cherry, cedar, earthiness and a sanguine or iron minerality to the wine. . Silky smooth with nearly invisible tannins except that you can tell it's well structured. Gets better quickly with a bit of air and shows an added dimension of anise. Really special stuff! 2010

Аромат неброский, суховатый, сухие ягоды, сухое дерево, черемуха, жимолость. Тело умеренно плотное, вкус ягодно-минеральный. 16/20 (90/100)

Mom says "good with spaghetti" dad says zesty, Kristin says spicy and I say smooth with a long nose and short finish.
