  • Score: 88 Vintage 2017 Wine Spectator This red sports a saline edge, along with cherry, strawberry, tobacco and spice notes. Light, with a wisp of tannins lining the finish. Nebbiolo, Vespolina and Uva Rara. Drink now. 1,600 cases made, 400 cases imported. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2017 Wine Enthusiast Woodland-berry, violet and botanical-herb aromas lift out of the glass. On the medium-bodied palate, fresh acidity accompanies unripe cherry, orange zest and clove while close-grained tannins leave an abrupt, drying close. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2016 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of leather, camphor and underbrush follow over to the palate together with notes of salted game and dried cherry. Firm acidity and tight close-grained tannins leave an austere, rather astringent finish. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
