Drank 1/6/20. Paired with Lasagne.

Typically a good value, solid wine year in and year out. Saw this one at Costco on sale for around $13.

Nose of cherry, earth, and a touch of vanilla and blackberry. Initially quite closed off on the palate, this eventually reveals layers of sweet red cherry, and a bit of tar, backed by tannins that are still quite firm. Long, dry finish dominated by red cherry and tar, with evident, drying tannins. Needs some time.

3/21/7/3/4 +50=88 pts.

Better on Day 3. I would give this a couple of years, or at least an hour to decant. May be 89-90 pt range.

Nice sangio for the price. Opens up nicely with some air and pairs great with Italian food.

Dry, in a good way. Bold flavor
Would pair well with cheese and olives for sure

Very nice, not amazing. Paired well with roast quail. Cherries and blackberries predominate.

Decanted for a bit opens up the wine. Nice tannins and well balanced.
