Fresh and balanced. Love the red fruit and dustiness.

In the "baby brunello" vein, a bit ripe & raisiny for me. Maybe some oak, too.

Solid, kind of crazy good with my birthday cake. Not in league with the great bottles I've had of this, but tasty.

A bit acidic at first but softened quick. Good oak and tannins. A nice wine!

2011 - not as round and full as hoped. Drank like a more aged wine. Pleasant but drink now if this is characteristic of the wine.
