I've had, IIRC the 2007. He sold that vineyard around 09, right?

It was palatable but, and maybe it's just terroir... but I'm so very wedded to eye-tal nebb, especially around the Piemonte, that I found it "meh".
It strikes me more like Sforzato style, with a heavy reliance on dried grapes.

It showed the outward characteristics of of Nebbiolo but wasn't as instantaneously pleasing to drink.

Pop it next to a proper mid-90's Barbaresco for some drool.gif

Wow, vintage variation in CA wine...what's the world coming to? Had an 08 Klinker Bricks Old Vine Zin on Friday and it was damn good for a retail of $16. Bought an 09 Sunday and had it last night. Cherry cough syrup.

Speaking of vintage variation, how are the Left Coast 10s shaping up? I've read nothing but kvetching from the wine makers.

I've been drinking a lot of Kermit Lynch Vin de Pays du Vaucluse lately. I'm quite a fan.

Great summer wine. Hard to think of a better bargain, too.

I can't complain about the $11 a bottle price tag at all. I finally found a wine store around here that stocks a large selection of KL imports, so I'm looking forward to checking out their other blends also.

Cypress and Sunflower Cuvees are great.

Mrs. Piob and I have decided not to drink wine (or anything alcoholic) Tues-Thurs. frown.gif

After taking several days off the hooch last week, prior to a bloodtest, I decided this is for the best. Costs less and I think it will help me drop another 10# or so. I'm not giving up on 200#.

I was visiting my folks in Jersey this weekend. That meant no alcohol. It was probably my driest weekend in 6 months.

i use visiting my parents as an excuse to drink up, up, and away

It is conundrum because I NEED to when I am around them. There is nothing like chugging Martinis in that sad bar in Penn Station.

Btw, tolerance is so weird how you lose it so quickly. I feel like I can drink a good amount, but after Friday to Sunday of no drinking I had two martinis Sunday night and I was wrecked with the worst hangover in a while Monday morning.

yup, same here. I also find that they're much more interesting people when they've also had a few (but aren't we all).

You want to try something that changes your capacity? Try dropping 50# and see what that does!
