Marc Bredif - Vouvray Nectar Moelleux
Light gold in color. Medium rim variation. Slow legs. Hints of Honeydew and Mango in the nose. Honey and vanilla flavors for this "meditation wine" with a long finish. A very elegant expression of a dessert wine with the delicate and perfumed character of a chenin blanc. 15 years but it can age even longer.
Calabretta - Etna Rosso
I opened this bottle after exactly one year from last one. The wine has improved and in a blind tasting with friends got a high score. Its color, lighter than a cab, reminds a pinot noir and so does the delicate but complex bouquet. Medium body and balanced acidity makes it perfect with food.
Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona - Ateo
I had saved this 1997 Supertuscan for a special occasion. Unfortunately it was corked! Bummer.
Sea Smoke - Pinot Noir Southing
Dark ruby and with an intense aroma. However I believe this wine is better when it's younger.
Conti - Boca
I opened this nebbiolo with some trepidation and unfortunately my fears were right: it had crossed the line between good aging and going bad. Not undrinkable but with a caramel, port-like after taste that reminded me more of a bad fortified wine. Not sure what I will do with the other bottle I still have in my cellar.
