Clerico Barolo Pajana 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Nebbiolo, Barbera: Stephen Tanzer 91 points "Good bright, full red. Plum, tobacco and cedary, nutty oak on the nose, with some earthy low tones. Sweeter and lusher than the 2005, with broad plum and oak flavors of impressive richness. A big boy with a long, sweet finish featuring very fine tannins."

The richly-colored 2001 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra opens with an unmistakable Ginestra nose of menthol, eucalyptus, spices and minerals. It is dense and structured, showing plenty of ripe dark cherry fruit, licorice, tar and toasted oak flavors, with exceptional length and substance on the palate, and closing with an inviting, beautiful, lingering finish that makes you want to come back to the wine time and again. Clerico's Ciabot Mentin Ginestra was one of the first Barolos that really captivated my attention and for me it remains this producer's most representative wine. It is a superb achievement and one of the highlights of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.

Clerico's 2000 Ciabot Mentin Ginestra has fared better than the Pajana, perhaps owing to the vineyard's more sheltered south-west exposure. Layers of mint, spices and crushed rocks add complexity to the generous fruit. The finish remains vibrant, textured and polished, with a prominent scent of oak that is typical of Clerico's wines during this era. I don't see much upside in the Ciabot, but it should hold for another handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.

The 2000 Barolo Ciabot Mentin Ginestra is even warmer and sweeter in aroma with sensations of cinnamon and sandalwood, roses and plums. As potent as the Pajana, it balances the richness of the extraction with more velvet and suppleness, greater depth, and a longer, more complete finish. Drink 2005-2020.

Good medium red. Exotic, exhilarating aromas of sappy red berry liqueur and woodsmoke. Wonderfully sweet on entry, then superripe and liqueur-like in the middle palate, with an utterly suave texture over firm supporting spine. Finishes impressively long and sweet, with serious but noble tannins. There's nothing especially austere or forbidding about this extremely rich Barolo.
