Vigna Pianpolvere Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

Vino che rispecchia l’identità della Bussia. Di color rubino al naso emergono subito frutti rossi e ciliegie mature per poi aprire a leggere note speziate. Fresco nonostante la grande portata alcolica grazie ad un tannino raffinato che ti invoglia a berne un bicchiere dopo l’altro. Finale lungo e forse in chiusura un po’ troppo sapido. — 17 days ago

Sean Thackrey

Orion Old Vines Rossi Vineyard Native Syrah 1997

Hello old friend. It has been a long time since I had a Sean Thackrey wine. The last bottle of my stash. Once again a wine teaches me a lesson. I never had one of these with more than 12-15 years on. Always found them to be oversized but well made. I also believed these might not go the distance and once again I am wrong. In the glass still a bold color . From the first sniff of eucalyptus you knew who made the wine. On the palate a wonderful collection of blue and black fruits with lovely acidity allowing the bold flavors to travel your mouth as if they were riding on a raft down a lazy river. The somewhat short finish was the only flaw that prevented a higher score. I am happy to report the alcohol was not intrusive. Perfectly paired with my lamb chop lollipops. — 2 months ago

@Joe Carroll I agree with your sentiments.
I do believe early on his wines had a “cult” following with out the insane pricing associated with cult wines. The bigger issue was trying to find the wine. I will go on record as not liking his pinots.

@Hugh O'Riordan If you can locate a bottle with great provenance give it a shot . I need to correct myself I guess I had a ‘98 in 2014 so that was with 16 years on it. Posted on ‘99 also .
