Not much to the nose. Golden color with strong density. Almond and nutty characteristics reminiscent of Orvieto. Smooth texture, almost flat. Palate shows long sinking structure with chalky minerality and some tropical notes. Dry throughout. Expected more. I would not have thought this was Bordeaux. Opened 7/17/15

Not in a good place right now. Very muddled, disjointed. Needs time

Dark fruits and slightly dry. Pairs well with cheese and creamy pastas. Much better when decanted, as it opens up a lot.

Fine and straightforward at first, better after 30 min, but then a little acidic after that - good accompaniment to an American Kobe cross rib- 2008 vintage
