Evolving nose over 2 hours finally opened to cigar and spicy cherry. So primary, rich, unevolved. Leave this deep in the cellar for 5+ yrs. Will most certainly improve.

After an hour, I’m not yet seeing the full RP 100 point rating, but it is really excellent. It’s a mixture of traditional Brunello with some serious new world richness, fruit and oak. It’s velvety with a firm spine of earthiness. It really a sublime mixture of new and old world.

Megan's wine of the night.
Absolutely superb. Definitely old world versus New World. Layers upon layers of deep and rich spice, prune and perhaps some type of herb that I could not place my finger on. you felt a kicking in on the back palate. It had so much going on that you relished every sip. This has another 20 years in front of it easily. It was just a baby tonight. No Decant!!!! Just popped and poured and it was sublime!. Thank goodness I have one left!!!!! Megan is developing an incredible Palate! She knew exactly what she did and did not like this evening. This immediately struck a chord and placed first. In all honesty, we are splitting hairs when it comes to the wines that we poured this evening. This was in my top three as well. Bravo Megan!!! This 100 point beauty definitely lived up to its hype.

@Mike Rowe @David A Lentine @Kirk Alexander @Ron R In my opinion., this was the 2nd place finisher in tonight's lineup. I Decanted all of the bottles with the exception of the Sena at 3pm. They all had 5+ hours to spread their wings and amaze us. This one certainly did. Massive and wound really tight at 3pm BUT it was flying as gracefully as a Monarch butterfly at 8pm. Awesome., awesome wine. Incredible producer. It Paired perfectly with Christine's homemade spaghetti sauce.

Decided to kill a baby tonight... Nose is very new world, very complex aromas of new oak cooperages. Sweet red fruits, needs many years of age to really strut it's stuff. Fun to try, but merely a novelty at this point.

Very concentrated, almost like syrup. Not my favorite style but pretty nose. It was better last night when we opened it for a little nightcap
