L.A. Cetto Nebbiolo Private Reserve Barrel Aged Baja Mexico 2003

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

85 points. Visually, it is a pure strawberry red, with a medium body. The nose shows nice dark red fruit notes, with volcanic stone, granite, and maybe even a touch of rose petal. There are also some bramble fruits, the slightest amount of chocolate and pepper, and a bit of vanilla bean. The palate opens with tart dark cherry and oak cask flavors, complete with charred wood and cacao powder. Again I get a saltiness, except this time it is more minerally than in the zinfandel. I also pick up on some rose and violet tones and whiskey barrels on the finish. The acidity on this wine is fresh and almost slightly citrusy, and it’s well balanced with slightly burnt tannins. Overall, this is a unique wine, well made, and true to its origin and varietal. This one has a touch of salt to it too, but I think it would be easier for more people to appreciate than the Zinfandel. Nothing earth shattering, but definitely unique. If you’re feeling adventurous, it might be a wine Worth Trying.
