Aged nose of sour cherry-drenched stems, dusty red fruit. This has cellared beautifully, Margaux-like but for the unmistakable dark red cherry and leather, lifted and layered, intense but restrained. Pure. Really needed 45 mins to sort out in decanter. Sublime, peaking but will sustain for a while.

In a good place right now where the tannins have calmed, but plenty of time left on this one. A definite decant.

Fuck yea! Femine, elegant, incredibly graceful in its texture and perfume. Dried violets, potpourri, crushed cherry, dusty earth, cracked pepper, beef blood and leather, menthol. So pure and ethereal. Silky tannin and vivacious acid, does not show its age at all at 14 years!

Served this wine to Nicholas Cage and his wife Alice Kim tonight. Now, I'll never forget it. Should be decanted.

Disappointing as based on reviews unexpected much more from this wine from this vintage. Burnt toast.

I️ Love flaccianello so might be biased but this wine is great. Strong red fruit, but soft tannins with some floral notes and that touch of menthol.

Intense purple color and fragrant truffle fresh fruit nose. Thick chewy cherry blueberry jam flavor with an extended finish. Could go for years.
