Light and somewhat fruity, better than average length. Surprisingly ready to drink and a good QPR.

Plum, spice, earth. Touch of funk early.

PnP and drank over three hours. Softened a bit with air. Dried red cherry, touch of green pepper. Good acidity and length. Probably not at peak.

Pnp, and this was too young for that. A bit of that La Serena funk I've been getting since 2006. Dark fruit. Loads of structure but I'm not sure this has the fruit to keep up. But, again, too young. Hold 5+

Meh. Pedestrian Italian red. Non-distinct. Probably a Total Wine "Winery Direct" gem.

Excellent nose. Huge cassis, blackberry, pen ink (thanks Joe). Touch of menthol. Mid weight. Ready to drink. 92-93

Auction purchase. PNP. Graphite, menthol, black fruit. Solid, reflective of the vintage

A bit over the top, even for NZSB. Raging acidity. May improve with a year, but out of balance right now 86-87

Opened 5 hours early with intent to decant. Tasted, declared "ready" and re-corked. Very good red fruit. Medium weight

Green apple, lemon, lime, hint of bread. Excellent acidity = length. Underrated vintage, wish I had more

Well, that was interesting. Different, may have called this a Gruner Veltliner blind. Decent complexity, but not ringing my bells. Points for ingenuity, but not a re-buy , for me, on price. Heavy bottle, deep punt, thick label, and waxed(?) cork aren't enough. 89-90.

Pineapple, lemon, lime, a slight back end acid-grip that gives this great length. Love the 11% abv

More French, than anything else, in style. Restrained, mineral driven. A bit ridiculous what I paid for these. 89-90

Beautiful Wife likes, I respect/like the complexity. Nose says Chenin Blanc to me but palate is butter-limited chard.
Also, B.W has changed her tune, abandoned the Horror that is Woodbridge, and is willing to pay for more of this.

4 hr slo-ox. Proper but simple Brunello. Lacks complexity. May have called this a solid rdM.

A bit different. Painfully dry. May be better blended, and I can see where some would like more than I.

2 hors slo-ox and drank over 4 hours. Last glass was best. Red cherry, bitter red cherry, tea. Med length. Good, but hoped for more given the pedigree. 90-91

Lighter body for a Nobile, certainly relative to the Mulinvecchia. Somewhat ethereal but with classic Nobile flavor profile. More feminine. Very good

HUGE Napa fruit. BW calls it port-like, which is not unfair. I love it at price.

Auction purchase. Good cork (yes, my first Loring "cork") with 20% bleed. Very good Loring fruit still, with aged characteristics nicely blended in. Different, for me, and fun.

Perfectly good mineral-driven rose with great length. Grossly over-priced.

If I were 20 years younger I'd be buying cases of cheap, quality, Riesling and laying it down for 20-25 years. A Win at price point.

Decanted and drank over three hours. An hour of air brought out some black red fruit. Obvious Bdx profile and a touch green early. Decent length, but I'd rather be drinking in Tuscany.
