My boy @Rick K landed in Detroit. Drew and I came to open up a can of whoop ass on his own pool table!
We also opened up on his cellar. This Gaja is singing right now. Nose displays blue fruits with saddle leather and fresh cigars. Mid-palate is so delicate and poised - almost weightless. Palate is soft and linear with roasted chestnuts, and maraschino cherries. Finishes with sage notes and brown sugar.
Just for the record, there’s no shame in my pool game!

Really pleased to see the structure and youth this wine is retaining out of half bottle. Should have a longer life than most even in a smaller format.

Lovely barbaresco. The tannins are still there but it was in nice balance

Голубика, земляника, пьяная вишня, цветы, табак, сосновая смола. Ещё молодо, третичные тона пока только в зачаточном состоянии; танины мелкозернистые, не до конца отшлифованные возрастом; хорошая кислотность; серьезная структура; в послевкусии последним финиширует дуб. Можно и нужно ждать.
