91pts, James Suckling
Subtle aromas of dried flowers, sandalwood and cherry. Full body, round and chewy. Plenty of new wood now. A year or two would soften it out. Drink now.

90pts, Wine Enthusiast
Chopped mint, menthol, blue flower and red berry aromas take the lead in this wine. The taut palate offers Marasca cherry, raspberry, star anise and ground clove flavors alongside fine-grained tannins. –Kerin O'Keefe

A labor of love, this vineyard surrounds their home and is one of their most prized plots of land.

For sub $30, this wine is off-the-charts amazing. Very high QPR situation going on in this bottle. It’s big, powerful, intense, but with a feminine edge resulting in a pure, balanced  wine that is just plain quaffing pleasure. So many aromas and flavors, so much to enjoy, some a bit reminiscent of Barolo. Lovely notes of dried cherries, sweet raspberries, tea and spice with hints of mint, sandalwood and star anise. Plenty of ageability on this beautiful wine, but there’s not a lot, so you better grab as much as you can.

$29 for beautiful Barbaresco! It’s calling you!

TASTING NOTES 

Powerful and intense with notes of dried and fresh cherries, raspberries, menthol, star anise, tea and sandalwood. Nicely integrated tannins with a weighty, yet balanced mouthfeel and pleasing finish.
