I’ve compared this to warmer Nebbiolo with its striking rose petal bouquet, with some tart red cherry, spice and a little herbaciousness in the mix. Finishes with a touch of heat.

This wine... is mental. Olives, salt, toffee, oil, funk.
I wish I had some Jamon on hand to go with it.
Amazing.

Interesting find - firm gum line tannins. Prune, earth and cherry. Felt very Italian. Classic.

Brent's description was spot on: traces of Musar, some Brett that blows off quickly, a spot of VA, bruised dark fruit and a woodsy component with acidity for days! Really fun bottle.

A lot like memories of Crete - forward lushness with a distinctly refined classical restraint and purity. Hillside scrubby herbs, olive skin tannin and flesh. Beautiful fruit and slightly charred edge.

Amazingly complex and like nothing I’ve had before. Almost no fruit on the nose or palate. Funky, leathery, salty, and smoky. Tannins are present and well integrated. Closest reference would be a Bordeaux blend. Awesome wine.

Light on the nose, red dark fruit, easy finish, perfect cheese pairing

Wow! Orange. Nose is intense but well balanced, with tobacco, figs, minerality. Tastes older than a 2006. Just a bit of red fruit, but the smooth, long, leathery finish dominates. Very impressive for $35
