I've not had this one, so I don't know if it's crappy or in a dumb phase, but Gattinara is predominantly Nebbiolo grown in Northern Piemonte, where it's cooler than Barolo, etc, hence you will typically end up with wines that are lighter than Barolo/Barbaresco, et al. The wines are typically even longer lived than Barolo, I've had some from the fifties and sixties that were remarkable.
Anyone have experience with Smiths' Antigua line? Super 120s wool/cashmere, 7-8 oz.
I find the Sea Smoke wines to be the poster children for the super sappy high alcohol style in California.
I worked at the Downtown Crossing Filene's Basement when I was in college and that is where I was introduced to Louis and to Rubinacci as Louis carried a RTW line at the time. It was easy to tell just by looking at the racks what pieces were from Louis. Murray had magnificent taste.
Oh, right, I don't disagree, I was just surprised/impressed that a state like California could get its collective shit together enough to remove a sitting governor from office. My expectation was that apathy would win the day.
Gray Davis says hello. Seriously, I have no idea what the process for recall is in NY, if there is one, but I lived in CA when Davis was recalled and I still can't believe that happened.
Any thoughts on the lifting of the embargo?
What's up with that Palmer label?
I love this show, though the most recent season was a fucking dumpster fire.
