Brooding and moody - waves of unorganized and brash flavors ebb and flow. Roses, leather, prunes, violets, tar, dried figs, and dark chocolate. Decanted two hours, could use more. The fruit finally showed fifteen minutes into the third hour; all red and dried. Just DOC, but worth the mid $20s tag.

Leather, anise, diesel, sour cherry, herbs, molasses. Tightness and astringency. Mild but lingering acid.

Approachable and goes with most everything, including standing up by itself.

Dang. For $14 this is an intense value wine. Find it.

Very good Nebbiolo. Medium body, dry but with a little tanginess.

Comes to you slowly but it's worth the wait. A smash with Peruvian roast chicken dinner.
