fresh red cherry, hint of dried fig, meat- bacon, roasted tomato? balsamic. Medium weight (13.5), firm tannins, medium acid. A bit short but lovely all the same. Give it just a year or two

Blood oranges and whole cluster-like aromatics. Some funk. Tannins that you could call rustic. Overall, less austere than the last time I had it, with discernible red fruit that has a character that somehow reminds me of really good California Grenache. This is a whole lot of wine for the money.

Bottle number two this month also quite impressive. Not complex but definitely elegant and persistent.

Not the most complex ER but expressive and delicate with nice persistence. Lovely and classic.

Haven't tasted this wine since the 11 due to sourcing problems. Tannins still a bit furry, but great richness and depth without sacrificing Aetnean depth or high wire aromatics
