Brought to Tasting Group. Presented double-blind. Pours a deep ruby color with some sediment in the glass. A mixed fruit set of mostly red and some dark fruits, dried cherries, leather, earth, dried leaf tobacco, and some dried herbs. Medium tannin with medium+ acid. Long finish. One person was close on place, calling Chianti Classico but nobody came close on vintage. To be fair, this certainly didn’t come across as a 30+ year old wine. If anyone has more of this laying around in a good cellar, you will be rewarded. — 4 days ago
Really quite a wine. Beautiful strawberry translucence in the glass. Decanted 1 hour and gave it a bit of a chill. Lots of great lighter red fruit. Very refined tannins and wonderful acid on the finish. Has a bit of a funky note on the end - only way I can describe it is it’s like the juices that come out of a good dry aged steak when it’s resting. So fun to try and perfect with a roast young chicken with mushrooms cooked in the chicken drippings. — 4 days ago
Wow, genius stuff. Deep yellow, so many flowers, petrichor, such incredible density and salinity. Fresh, so complex, salty as hell. Almost oily but not viscous. Delightful and profound. Feels like this will only get better.
Has the magic quality of great Italian whites where the vibrancy is all mineral and textural and not acid. — 14 days ago
Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe fruits, sweet herb spice and earthy notes. On the palate flavors of ripe cherry and plum, cacao, tobacco with gentle herb spice wrapped in balanced acidity. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy character. Just starting to show well but will age for next 10 years. Nice! — 2 days ago
