Le Piane

Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2004


Second mistake opening of the week! Turns out to be single bottle from a vertical of six vintage from JR! So now there are five vintages left. But what a wine! Subdued on opening but bloomed over the next hour. Beautiful deep mature floral notes in old forest with herbs and spices and yet a lively almost light texture on palate with long finish. Yum. What a vertical tasting to be! ‘02, ‘06-07-08-10. — 2 months ago

Colonia Las Liebres

N: sun baked strawberries and raspberries, touches of bramble, stone, vanilla, white pepper
P: boysenberry and other darker berries join in, pencil lead, light hints of spice and smoke . Juicy, med - med + body, med tannin, med + acid

Had with spiced roast chicken with chimichurri. Food brings out a roasted red pepper/ paprika note in the wine. Chimichurri brings out a tart side to the fruit and plays up the bramble.

Interesting, it shows like a Cahors with a lovely violet purple nose and rustic tannin on the palate. It will be interesting to see what age delivers. — 8 months ago
