91pointsContratto 2000 Alberta (Barbaresco)

A highly nuanced nose leaning more toward animal and mineral notes than fruit opens this muscular effort. Leather, ash and forest fire flavors dominate the palate, framed by sinewy tannins. A few cherry notes peek through the tar-infused finish. Serve with game.
