Lovely sweet fruit with a touch of sweet wood emerges slowly from the glass with notes of earth, roasted thyme, asphalt, medicinal herbs, and a hint of Chucky T sneakers adding great depth and complexity. On the palate this is very focused with real finesse. It’s a lighter bodied wine but packed with tannin for the moment, but even through all that tannin one can sense the fine earthy, red fruit. The finish is long and layered and the juxtaposition of aggressively dark flavors and elegant, lithe texture is enchanting. 91pts

AWE blind tasting - nice jammy fruit, black fruits, black raspberry, a pretty fruit driven nose, with some nice stemmy herbal background tones, and touched of leather and camphor, a bit flaccid in the mouth, really doesn’t follow up the nice aromatics, the flavors gain some intensity but are low key if nice with authentic medicinal character juxtaposed against a smaller raspberry toned fruit, big tannins on the finish, 87-88

Notes of sweet leather, smoky burnt marshmallow, some green cardamom and big sweet cherry fruit join lots of toasty oak on the nose. Lighter and rounder in the mouth than the 2006 with softening tannins and nice earthy, dark cherry fruit edged in toasty coffee tones. This is full in the mouth but without much detail at the moment, nice richness and solid acidity on the somewhat short finish, which has more of that coffee quality and a hint of incipient floral perfumes. 88pts

AWE blind tasting - a bit more smoky loamy styled tight, hard masculine and dark, a bit loose in a focused slightly extracted style a bit too much power here and not balancing the crisp ripe fruit, good inner mouth aromatics though, this is powerful and intense and will last a long time with a very long, very medicinal black fruited finish but there is a lot of structure to loose here, 87-88

Winemaker's Notes:

Garnet red with orange reflections. A classic Barolo nose, fresh, elegant, leather, hay, earthy and spicy tones. Flavor is supple, with a good balance between tannins and acidity, persistent. Serving suggestions: Spicy stews, aged cheese.
