Going to sleep. Lots of promise here, but entering the black hole of its adolescence. Check back in 2025.

Too young right now. Relaxed after a 2+ hour decant. Sour cherry, and dried fruits opened up to leather, spice, dried flowers, tar, and sweet wood tones. Tannins were a bit aggressive but complemented a rich oxtail pasta well. Great wine with greater potential can't wait to revisit in a few years.

Admittedly very young, but this is mightily impressive. Built like a brick shithouse and a beautiful one at that. Layered with brooding dark intensity. Can't wait to try in a few years.

Sweet red fruity nose. Fleshy and very firm. Tannins pronounced. $65

Stellar! Barbaresco is my thing, and every bottle I open is confirming that! Superb nose, elegantly inviting to the first sip, mouthfeel confirming the aromatic and fruity taste. Well done! 👏

Since @Keith Crump opened a Rio Sordo I took out a Rabaja (thanks Keith for inspiring me 😁). It just kept me coming back for more. I adore those type of wines that suddenly make me forget about being "concious" what I'm drinking and make me realise it's just good!

Dark cherry liqueur, balsamic notes, plum with a deep resonant personality. Ripe but well delineated. Tasting great now but has room to grow.

Meaty. Red fruit and currant. Surprisingly evolved, but chalk it up to an early to drink vintage

What a powerhouse!Compared to the Pora still a baby. Will still need time to soften it's hard edges. But every diamond needs some cutting...
