This is a bright red wine with a see-through garnet heart, lighter towards the edges. In line with the best Nebbiolo wines in the world, this nose is intriguingly different from the typical. It promotes spice and flavors of the earth rather than fruit sweetness. There is a herbaceous intensity of lilac, thyme, lavender and basil flower and a spicy sweetness of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. On the palate, flavors are complex, lingering and enticing, put together with sweet strawberry, pomegranate and a cherry acidity zing. Tannins abound and form the tactile aspect to a thought provoking experience.

Opened this bottle to share with my friends yesterday. I would say the tannins are mildly powerful in the initial stage. Put aside and let it breadth. After an hour plus, it start to opened up beautifully. Strong aroma of berries, oak, plums, dry, a bit sweet bitterness, good structure, quite well balanced, and nice long finishing. When the 45 days aged Aussie Grain Fed Black Angus OP steak arrived, it pairs very well.
