According to Wine Spectator - A touch of oak adds spice to the cherry and plum flavors, and tannins to the texture. Balanced, if lean, with tobacco and spice nuances on the finish. Drink now through 2017.
Tasting Notes - Offers up generous fruit along with menthol, spices and hard candy, showing notable intensity while retaining an essentially mid-weight style. Strong, intense and powerful when young, complex and elegant with the ageing. 100% Nebbiolo. 14.5% ABV.
