(this will be released in 2003) Medium red. Deep, expressive aromas of red fruits, minerals, dried flowers, roasted herbs, tar and camphor; I might have picked this blind as Barolo. Complex, penetrating, traditionally made wine with great verve and insinuating inner-mouth perfume. Urgent cherry, floral and spice flavors. Hugely tannic and very long; this multidimensional Barbaresco went into a shell in the glass. My score may prove to be conservative.

Delicious. Full-bodied, with luscious, ripe plum, berry and cherry character and silky tannins, all in balance. Goes on and on. Wonderful. Always refined and inviting. 1,150 cases made.

Dark crimson. Pretty nose of black cherry, tar, and menthol. Wonderful presence in the mouth, with bright acidity and long, mouthcoating tannins. Still not showing much in the way of tertiary development; I;m going to wait on my remaining bottles. Great wine.

Perfectly balanced wine. Medium-bodied in the best way. Round, warm and enveloping aromas of red fruits and toasted nuts. Tannins are there but are buried by the fruit. No crime to drink now but its peak is probably 3-5 years out.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
