Tolaini - Picconero
Decanted, aerated, drank 3 hrs later. Initially a bit of funk on the nose, but that volatilized away quickly to reveal dark fruit, anise and licorice on the nose. On the palate this wine's tannins are evident, but it has the fruit and acid to carry it. Tarry notes. Wonderful mid-palate. Seems to touch all the taste buds. Long finish. This wine will continue evolve, I'd et it has the stuff to go at least another decade. Outstanding!
Spring Mountain - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Wonderful just now. Blueberries and red fruit. Menthol, eucalyptus, cedar. Med + tannins; med acid; gracious length. Exceptional.
Mario Giribaldi - Barbaresco
Med-high acid; High tannins; a bit out of balance as fruit not quite up to the tannins and acid, but overall a nice Barbaresco, esp for the price!
Spring Mountain - Elivette
Decanted for four hours. Nose of violets, menthol, camphor. Beautiful dark-ruby color. Med+ acid, high tannins, but the fruit can carry it. Cab Franc gives it depth, Petit Verdot lends a blueberry undertone. A wonderful effort, but Spring Mountain never fails to delight!
