Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(tasted from barrel) Good deep red. Dark cherry, licorice, leather and mocha on the nose. Concentrated and spicy if a bit reduced coming from the barrel. But this shows more energy and lift than the nebbiolo, and lovely breadth for 2005. Finishes with suave tannins and mint and mineral nuances.
