Can hold, should hold. Layered, complex, back-of-palate dance, long finish.

Velvety nose of cognac and red fruit. There's some strangely harsh tannin action going on on the front palate. Pepper and steel. This feeling stays around, making for a long finish. Bone dry, I'd say. Strong acidity. Great wine, but it's pretty demanding right now. Same thing on day two. Lingers for minutes and, in a way, hours. So maybe hold for I don't know how many years. Looking forward, though. 50+4+12+18+9=92. PS: A creamy dish saved it. Great fun!

I've never had a dissatisfied guest. If you are trying to help a Napa Cab drinker make the leap this is a producer that you can trust. It is a typical but it is approachable for a new world palate

I continue my love for Brunello. Big, integrated tannins, red flowers, sour cherry.

Safe. Not daring. Needed a great lasagne to pair with perhaps

Trademark sour cherry, lingonberry aromas. Still not perfect, but enjoyable with a dp vial Bolognese pasta sauce. Before you know it the bottle is empty...
