Vieux-Os - Zinfandel Hell Hole Vineyard Old Vine
Yuck. Wish I never purchased this wine. Too much, no refinement. Fine to drink, not one I will treasure. Remember to gift this in the future....
Domenico Clerico - Barolo Ciabot Mentin (Ginestra)
Okay, not spectacular. Would have benefited by decanting for a bit more and a more thoughtful tasting. Just popped the cork and drank. Certainly was better later, but hard to say that it blew me away (like last time). Fine on the pallet but seemed to not have much on the back end.
Bruno Giacosa - Barolo
Just out of the bottle, solid (not spectacular). Needs to open up, very tight. Preliminary taste is okay (~91) but sense it is going to improve.
Reynolds Family - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Select
Wonderful, nearing peak.
Bartolo Mascarello - Barolo
Great, getting better all the time!!!
