Vinous 90 pts:
A rich, ample wine, the 2009 Nebbiolo blossoms on the palate with striking depth. Orange peel, leather and spices meld together in a mysterious, exotic Nebbiolo with tons of complexity. A slightly oxidative note lingers on the finish, but here it also complexity and nuance. The 2009 spent one year in French oak followed by three years in cask. The straight Nebbiolo is a blend of fruit from all four sources Palmina works with; Stolpman, Sisquoc, Alisos and Honea.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 90pts:
Bright red. Vibrant red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by notes of zesty minerals and fresh lavender. Poised and focused on the palate, with energetic red fruit flavors joined by musky licorice and rose pastille. Silky tannins are smoothly folded into the spicy, energetic fruit, adding firmness to the finish
