Surprised by the generosity, drinking quite well for how young it is. Open-knit, true to place, moderately framed with some true charm to it. Really enjoyed over a few days. Deep red fruit, almost succulent, soaked cherries and lots of licorice root, cedar, cinnamon, flowers and tar. There’s a undertone of earth. From a tannin perspective these appear ripe, with moderate intensity relatively speaking.

Tuolumne Meadows lodge, as Rose is just about to finish the John Muir Trail, solo (!). Soft and balance, intense cherries, correct bitter balance.

Spice, fresh blackberry, and floral notes on the nose. Vanilla, almond, cooked dark cherry, tobacco, cocoa, cinnamon, black tea, savory mushrooms, and jammy black and red fruit on the palate. The finish provides lingering oak, cocoa, and tobacco notes with long acid. High tannins, high acid, and high alcohol. Bring on the lasagna.

Wonderfull nose, elegant mouthfeel. Long finish. Still not firing on all cylinders. Still running up that hill...

16.5+/20 (90+/100) Красивый и тонкий аромат с нотами вишни, клюквы и сухой древесины. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, бархатистыми, но сильно вяжущими танинами, вино можно буквально жевать. Бесконечно молодо, можно забыть о нём лет на 15-20. #vinitaly2019

First taste of a 2015. This is everything I hope for in Nebbiolo. Rose accented red fruit aromatics. Subtle power with texture and structure. Great with mixed grill meats. One of my favorite wines.
