From a restaurant list, decanted and poured. Nice reddish color with bricking, translucent. Aromatic floral nose with notes of sweet plums, rose petals, some tar and a little hickory. Watery at first but firmed up with air. We went through 4 btls of this, all consistent. Showing some age. Its still youthful overall.

Perfecto! Well not quite but so delicious the bottle ran out because I poured it all into my glass, again and again and again until the bottle was empty!

Needs a minimum of 4 hours of air to show. Then you'll love it. Was not so wonderful prior to that.

Sweet dried cherry, leather, mushroom and rose petal. This took 5 hrs in the decanter before it came together. When 1st opened it had a slightly over ripe fruit on the palette and seemed a little flat but really opened up and developed into a nice drinking Barolo.
