2008 Roagna Barolo Pira Nebbiolo

Clear light red. Aromatically beautiful right from the start-red fruit, herb, pipe tobacco. It took a bit longer to come around on the palate after being decanted. Tight and tannic at first, but rapidly blossomed earthy red fruit and licorice with perfectly weighted acidity. So light, so elegant, so subtle, and so gorgeous that it had this Burgundy lover scratching my head and wondering how and why you would drink any red wine other than Nebbiolo. All perfume and seduction.

2000 Penfolds Grange South Australia Shiraz Blend, Syrah
Insanely perfumed. The minute I pulled the cork the scent filled the room. First glass was amazing. Hard to drink much more than that.
