From mag. Had not yet tried this wine with this much age before and didn’t know what to expect but it was really quite nice. Develops kind of like a gamay or Pinot. Black cherry and raspberry still there but definitely leaner and more acid-driven and savory at this point. Dried flowers, stewed tomato, dried herbs, mushroom, maybe a little sweet tobacco and mesquite. Overall I think I would still drink this young for the exuberant lip smacking red fruit but this was interesting

And here I thought Frappato was just glou glou. 2008 Occhipinti going strong.

Absolutely delicious--manages to be hedonistically flavorful yet light and gulpable at the same time

Not as effusively fragrant as in its youth, but still an elegant, delightful wine.
