Dark cherry reduction, a little green, cranberry. Decent balance, decent seriousness, decent length. A lot of the components are there, but just feels a little young.

Modern. Sweet nose. Decent acidity. Nebbiolo reads through, but so does barrique. Not really my wine, because it doesn’t do justice to Nebbiolo, but in a couple of years a lot of people will get a good value for the money.

Very nice. Excellent balance. Good, clear lines and an authoritative spine. Feels like it needs 5 more years, but, extrapolating the other attempts, I’s say maybe 1 would be a better milestone. That is if it manages to keep this balance.
