Slightly underwhelming. Fun to try and have, but bitter oak nuance took over, fruit was tired, and I didn't crave another glass.. Coravin'd my 2010 Erba Cabernet and for $20 cheaper, WAY better. A wine that I wouldn't really pay for, but I'm not gonna say no to a glass. I wish they'd try and get back to the old days and make a wine like they used to. Maybe they will one day.

Nice bouquet. This may need to age more. 2012 vintage consumed in May 2018.

Excellent, elegant, aromatic! Well balanced with a fruity bouquet. Smooth and supple gave me hints of cherries, vanilla, berries and of course Oak with a beautiful long finish.
