Top Notes For
M. Christopher Roebuck

Past notes apply, but let's go through the motions. Decanted for 45 minutes. Nose: Tobacco, pine needles, soil, and a cherry base. Deep ruby in color, medium plus bodied, medium plus alcohol, medium acidity. More red cherry emerges on the palate, and pipe tobacco... More precisely, my dad's Captain Black from the 1980s. Taste not quite as complex as the smell. Finish is medium. Tannins are perfectly centered. This just misses my 94 point threshold.

Red brick color, mint, tobacco on the nose and on the palate. A bit of chocolate emerging on the palate. Acid and tannins will deliver this wine to another dimension in a few more years. Even now it's top shelf!

A ripe Brunello. Soft tannins and Bordeaux like use of oak thru me off.

[Tasted on August 2, 2020 at Oceana in Santa Monica]

Cherry, wild strawberry, loamy earth, spice, graphite and a touch of iron. Beautiful, well balanced Brunello.
