Had this with 2 hour long simmered bolognese sauce and fettucine. Popped and poured and what a wine. Incredibly plush wine with great cherry fruit and amazing concentration. Unlike many other wines with similar fruit profile, this has lots of acidity and tannins to balance the wine out perfectly. Some earth and spice on the palate, as well. Although this is clearly awesome to drink right now, this wine is built for the long haul. I believe this shouldn’t even be touched for 5 years. All I could think of was how good this will be in a few years.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
