Community Tasting Notes 2

    October 26, 2021 - "Baby Masseto" and a Night of Nebbiolo through the Decades (Charlotte, NC): Opened 4 hours before serving. The fear ahead of dinner was this wine would either be over-the-hill or sublime -- tonight it was stunningly sublime. Lovely bouquet of red cherries and delightful earthiness intoning a formidable wine to come. Fulsome on the mouthfeel with rich red cherries, tobacco and tar on the palate. Delightfully long finish. Revisiting this later in the evening the wine evolved into an undeniable profile easily mistaken for the highest “Class Growth” Bordeaux. Fully resolved tannins, elegant structure and beautiful finesse -- a spectacular wine. Four votes for “Wine of the Night.”
