Community Tasting Notes 8
November 16, 2013 - Opened the bottle a couple of hours before drinking. Good cork, barely colored. In the glass, had that deceptively light nebbiolo color in the Piemontese fashion. Sweet fruit, nice acidity, noticeable but not objectionable level of tannin. Very interesting styling for this grape. Glad to see it gain more traction in California vineyards.

November 9, 2013 - The new vintage of Wind Gap Nebbiolo has shipped, so why not open my one and only bottle of the 2006. It's certainly got those Nebbiolo tannins, as well as bright, fresh berry fruit. Some floral and road tar elements come through with a bit of air, and overall it's very true to the variety. A little straightforward right now, but I'm drinking it too soon. There is plenty of fruit and tannin to allow it to age for a few years. I'll just have to be patient with the newest vintage. Well done Pax!

If you like your Nebbiolo young, then please go for it. If you like it a little more balanced and easy, then wait at least a couple more years....!

November 18, 2012 - Very good. Not quite a barolo, but still the best nebbiolo effort I've tasted in the new world. Still young and tannic - if you drink, best decant. It was better the next day than the day I opened it.

July 21, 2012 - Tar and black fruit on the nose, with some pepper and floral notes. Soft on the palate, with tar and pepper, some black fruit on the mid-palate, and a slightly floral finish.
