Alberto Nanclares

Rías Baixas Albariño 2013

Seth Morgen Long
9.3

There is a level of density and class to the Rias Biaxas of Nanclares which seems to elevate the wines above the rest of the appellation. Quintessential but out of the ordinary. Reminds me of the ways that Dagueneau or Miani transcends. This 2013 has pedigree and such a youthful fervor, no hurry here. — 14 days ago

Voerzio Martini

La Serra Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

Började stängd och framstod som platt. Efter två dagar i kylen är den mer på, josig bärighet, lädertoner och aning till viol kommer fram. Fortfarande ingen explosion av doft och smak direkt men fin i sin lågstämdhet — a month ago

Harlan Estate

The Maiden Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2007

This was solid but didn’t really go anywhere great and I wanted it to so bad. Cherry tobacco, blackberry and cedar. This bottle and the 3 others I brought to Wisconsin from Chicago all endured a ride in a wine suitcase in the back of a truck in the 15 degree Midwest winter. 3 of the bottles—Voerzio, Beringer and Harlan Maiden—all performed below expectations. The PM Les Pavots, however, was excellent. While I’ve never opened a Voerzio that young I’ve had consistently better experiences with the same vintages of the Beringer reserve and Maiden. I’m wondering if you cold weather dwellers think the cold transport played some role in what happened here. — 3 months ago

I personally believe in bottle shock due to rapid temperature swings and vibration from transportation. Especially in older vintages. Every damn time I drive older wines up to my buddy’s place in CT (about a 4 hr drive) for New Years, they never show well. Similar experience in summer temps. I haven’t cracked the code on how to transport and drink within a day or two. Generally I find the wines to do MUCH better after at least 4 weeks of resting in a cellar after shipping.

Giuseppe E Figlio Mascarello

Monprivato Cà d'Morissio Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2010

Thought the Voerzio was the better wine as the Mascarello was thin and not showing much out of the gates. The Cap was disappointing. Had moved the secondary and tertiary flavors which was surprising given its only a 2005. — 14 days ago
