Red with a brickish rim, there are aromas of violets, red cherries, and balsamic. It's woodsy cherry on the palate, with a pleasant bitter almond finish. Nice tannins. 14.5% abv | $28 (Vermont)

Homemade ravioli and Barbaresco? Sign me up tondo this every night! This wine was full of gorgeous tar & roses with the food and revealed its tannic backbone once we were finished eating.

A solid and intense if rustic barby! Ripe red fruits like cherry and strawberry dominate the strong aromatics, while the flavor is influenced by some rustic cranberry, cherry, and floral notes, with just a hint at some sensual mushroomy earthiness I wish I could turn the volume up on. With time, the long finish should only be more interesting in a few years.

It's really nice when a wine starts out as 'ordinary' and then grows into something complex and full of memory as it sits. Over an hour, this has turned from only fresh strawberry w/ an alcohol nose burn to cedar, raspberry, black cherry, tar, dr pepper, cocoa, and rose petal. Crumbly tannin, med+ acid, and a moderate finish. If I'm being objective, it's a touch hot, the oak is apparent, and the fruit is just a bit overripe, but tonight - at home w/ osso buco, my wife, my daughter, and memories of my father - it's perfect.
