Ah, the joys of finding stuff you bought long ago and forgot
2007 Pepiere ?Clos des Briords? Muscadet
This was never supposed to be a long lived Briords, but this is just fine over 3 nights.
Sweet lemon, saline/seashell, light and refreshing. B+
2002 Tortochot ?Lavaux St. Jacques? Gevrey-Chambertin 1er
Don?t really know producer,but must have bought for a reason (HDH, 2008,. $27). Nicely balanced, black cherry with some Gevrey dirt, just a touch of tannin remaining on finish. Nice, and I?ll drink other bottle soon. B+/B
2003 Sella Lessona
Don?t think I would have picked this for Nebbiolo if blind, but it was tasty and surprisingly balanced for a 2003 (13.5%). Round red fruit, smoky, soft acids, maybe (since I know Piedmont), I can think I detect a little tar. B/B+
2000 Lava Cap ?granite Hill? Petite Sirah
Blueberry jam meets cheap plum brandy. Hot, cracking up. Maybe better 10 years ago. Maybe not. C/C+
3 out of 4 not bad.
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C
drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
