My second try at the Andrea Roberto Barolo.  Murky, dark and a touch cloudy.  The nose offers up raisin, black cherry and a woodsy note.  The palate is smooth, tannic and very juicy with black fruits, tar, lapsang souchong tea.  The mid palate has a really full mouthfeel, almost syrupy.  Black berry reduction, more tea, black this time, and creosote hit the gums.  The finish is long, alluring and chock full of dark, brooding fruit, gum searing tannins and teeth staining purple goodness.  92 points and still young.  $40 now, it gets 4 stars.  Salut….
