2010 G.D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Langhe DOC (10/14/2012)
-- decanted immediately before initial taste --
-- tasted non-blind over a few hours --
NOSE: red fruited; mineral; roses; dried basil and oregano; tight to moderately expressive; hint of strawberry jam.
BODY: dark ruby color of medium depth; medium bodied.
TASTE: red-fruited, with good acidity and not much tannin; clean --- not funky; some dried herb notes on the long finish, which is of medium-light intensity; about three hours in, the dried herb (sage) notes gain in intensity, the fruit profile darkens a bit, and the finish gains in intensity; no tar flavor; 14% alc. well-hidden; decant if drinking now, but will likely improve a little with a couple years laying down. A nice daily drinker --- good QPR. Gut impression score: 87-89
