Thomas Fogarty Nebbiolo Blend Santa Cruz Mountains 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very interesting on the nose with its medicinal, sweet, licorice root aromas that contrast with the lightly waxy red cherry fruit. there is a slightly medicinal, rather Serralunga-like camphor note here. Delicate and silky on the palate with a nice tannic freshness, this lacks some depth of fruit, and the nice slightly chewy tannins dominate the surprisingly long finish but it certainly smells, tastes and feels like nebbiolo. 87pts
