Reply to "October 2014: What Are You Drinking?"

Last night at Crush with a handful of the TO gang:

2002 Bisol Pas Dosé Extra Brut Millesimato Talento Classico
2010 J.L. Chave Sélection Hermitage Blanche
2010 Massa Vecchia Maremma Toscana Fabrizio Niccolaini Rosato
1989 Guasti Clemente Barolo Riserva
1998 Domenico Clerico Barolo Carobric
1996 Heitz Cellars Martha's Vineyard Cab Sauv
1998 Balthasar Ress Hattenheim Nussbrunnen Riesling Spätlese
2009 Massa Vecchia Maremma Toscana Passito (Aleatico)

All bottles tasted blind. All showed well. Some real surprises, especially the Carobric which no one pegged as Nebbiolo. When we learned what it was, we were sure that someone had poured the wrong bottle.

Some of the crew continued at FWR afterwards:

2012 Sottimano Langhe Nebbiolo
