If you like fine aged Pinot Noir and older wines in general, you will love Neb. The two time-honored descriptors are “roofing tar” and “heart of the rose”: a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll. Nebbiolo is the single grape of the singular wine Barolo from Piedmont in North West Italy. It is said to be the most full bodied of all wines, referring to what can be ferocious  tannins that  mellow with the traditional long barrel and bottle aging prior to release. True to type our 2010 is just now being offered up after 3 ½ years in barrel, twice a long as for other reds. 
 

Already 5-years-old, the wine is translucent in color fading to brick at the rim.  No gobs of black fruit here, it’s all about autumn forest aromas, savory herbs, campfires and meat roasting on the spit.  Think walnut skin, white earthy truffles of Alba (Piedmont again) and yes, tar and roses. In the mouth there is a beautiful harmonious dance between tannin and acidity, it's all going on.  A true fine wine to be slowly sipped  and savored with the traditional upcoming Thanksgiving and Holiday meals, preferably with  roasted meats and pan juices.  This special occasion wine is one for the main course, but be sure so save a glass for cheese. Refined now and will age 3 - 5 more years.

I love this wine, which is a stretch for me because I am usually a fan of deeper and heavier wines ("gobs of fruit") such as Syrah. But this wine has been a crowd pleaser the past two Thanksgivings. My friends and I found it to be the perfect pairing with the traditional holiday feast of turkey and all the trimmings. Even it's rusty color blends w our holiday decor of autumn colors.
