2009 La Spinetta (Rivetti) Langhe Nebbiolo

I found this to be refreshing in its style. Relatively light impression. Colour clearly matured. Well balanced and very drinkable right now. Not super complex but still a wine that shows several different shades from first sip to its long after taste. Will not keep remaining two for much longer.

The wine was dark ruby in colour and offered floral notes, red and dark fruit, marzipan, chocolate and herbal notes on the nose. On the palate the wine showed red and dark fruit, chocolate, some coffee, herbs and liquorice, with medium-plus acidity, obtrusive, medium-plus tannin and very good length of the bitter chocolate-infused finish. The medium-bodied wine came across as dark and dense, with good structure, yet needs more time to smooth out. I would hold and start drinking from 2018. 88+

The wine looks purple colored. The legs are medium. There is heavy sediment in the bottle. The body is full.

Italians at Scena (Scena, Mpls, MN): Very dark red color. PNP, this was very ripe, modern, big, extracted, lots of alcohol on the nose and palate, big black fruits, dill, very spicy, lots of oak, firm grippy tannins. At 15 years old, one wonders whether this will settle down and integrate more. If you like big ripe Italians, this is for you.

Denna flaska är antingen aningen förbi toppen eller så är den smärre defekt. Kommer att prova ytterligare en flaska inom kort för att avgöra detta.

Color almost opaque. Lavender on the nose, alcohol quite well integrated. The palate is dominated by some wood and tannins. The first taste was better, foolishly decanted. I would no longer do so. Quite long finish, but some fruit is missing. Drink now, at least over the next two years.

Birthday Bottle!!!

Thanks B, N, R......!!!

Garnet, medium(+) bodied wine
Dusty, red cherry, some chocolate, wet concrete
Very dry, taste follows the nose, leather, salted meat (VERY MEATY). Light tannin, a

This is one powerful wine that punches you and leaves behind a bruise. Great with a heavy dinner, like prime rib tonight. Drinks more like a big Barolo. I believe it is at or near its peak. Drink up....!

Second Sunday Group: Domestic Grenache: Pale color with notes of of citrus/grapefruit and mineral, though somewhat restrained and nondescript. There's a candied sour apple quaity to the palate ending with a hint of jalapeno pepper which, combined with the wine's bright acidity, leads me to think this is Sauv Blanc. The finish is a little short, but it's clean and easy to drink.

My first bottle of this case. Clear dark ruby with minimal brick. Very dusty nose with a whiff of roses. Bright palate of black cherry, fig, earth, and licorice. Excellent length. Bright acidity. Young, tight tannins. It should be a couple of years before I open another of these.

Mini Barbaresco tasting (at my home): Coravin tasting
see my previous TN
but now since there're lots of sediments in the bottle, the palate is a bit different. Anyway this wine is great.

Dark red. Dark cherry fruit and a little pip. Some padding, deep fruit and herbs. Interesting and enjoyable today, but worth cellaring to see what develops. This DOC permits many red grape varieties to be blended.
Pin is 65% nebbiolo and 35% barbera

Decanted about 5 hours. Very dark and reserved initially. Lots of tannins and notes of leather, wood, honeycomb and earth. Very thick and concentrated. It was definitely screaming for some food. After a while some fruit, plums-black berries, was apparent in the mouth. The last glass was the best and in most balance. Seems like a very well made wine with still some up-potential. It is just in an awkward place right now. Or maybe won't ever really settle in a wonderful balance.

On the nose-vegetal and earthy aromas and bursting with fruit. On the palette, cherries and blueberries, some midpalette spice/cinnamon. moderate tannins. A big wine, can go a few more years in the bottle.

This wine was awkward on the first day even with a 2 hour breathing and over a 2 hour dinner. Nice flavor but no finish. We saved half of the bottle for the next day and it developed very nicely. Very rich broad sexy fruit with tar and liquorish and a long complex lingering finish. This wine was gaining in complexity as we finished it. Awesome with lamb. Wait a few years before opening our next bottle.
