Top Notes For
Byron C Mayes

Clear garnet with gem-like highlights. Inviting nose of violets and black tea. Palate is medium full bodied and echoes the nose adding black cherry from entry and a bit of tar on the lingering finish. Well structured with assertive (but not aggressive) medium plus tannins and medium plus acidity. A Langhe that portends what’s to come when the 2019 twins of Barolo and Barbaresco are released in a few years. It’s already an excellent match for for hearty beef and pork dishes, but priced so that you can take it to the pizzeria or upscale your take out. I can’t wait for the big boys either, but enjoy this now through 2029 or so.
