    Forum post in the topic Wines that Sing


  • Hard to say what it exactly is, but we've all had moments when wines were really open and "singing" maybe after a quick decant, or hours of air, they just started to open and catch fire. I can think of quite a few wines that stick out in this way, though it seems like a very unpredictable phenomenon. Also, what the heck is going on with wines th... Read More

  • VV, if you liked the Kenneth Volk Malvasia, K&L has it on sale. Clendenen makes a Nebbiolo--he has a tiny patch up on a hill separate from his other vines.  It's actually pretty good, and occasionally can be found at K&L and a few other places.  I matched it against an Aldo Conterno basic Barolo a while ago, and it was pretty hard to tell which ...

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

  • Met up with Foxall last night in Oakland...We had a couple modest '04 Barolo at dinner. The Aldo Conterno was drinking very well, plenty of acid and tannin, with typcial bursts of dark nebbiolo fruit. Also found some mild cinnamon impressions and other spices, however did not find the oak cloying, even though Foxall gave some background on how t... Read More

  • I think OT had a thread in Berserkers all about pictures of vines and vineyards...tried to find one on here but came up short. There was some talk of Limerick Lane (has a nice ring to it) on here recently, I believe Mark has some of the wines. Just now I noticed a nice picture of some Limerick Lane Vineyard rows posted to Facebook by Adam of Sid... Read More

  • That's good to hear Fox...2000 is the most accessible Barolo I've ever had (happened to be a Bartolo Mascarello in February 2014), so not surprising the Granbussia showed well. Also nice to share a great bottle like that with your SO. I was at a tasting yesterday with a bunch of friends, perhaps we had too many wines on the table, that a lot of ... Read More

  • Sandrone is modernist, so it's interesting to see what's happening to those.  The modernists probably made the wines more drinkable young by taming the tannins with oak, but at a cost of burying some of what makes Nebbiolo unique. (Here I am sounding like some cocksure expert--I'm not, but this is certainly how many, including Oz Clarke, saw it,... Read More
