Hey SG, I've been flying under the radar for a while now (since, what, 2007 or so?), but thought of you and the ol' gang over the past few nights.

Enjoyed a 2003 Radio Coteau Timbervine last night, and tonight it was 2001 JJ Prum Graacher Himmelreich Auslese (with lobster bisque). It reminded me of how difficult a time we had getting the R-C delivered after they got inundated with demand post-publication of their scores, and ... well, the Prum I got from that wine shop behind the Pancake Pantry in Nashville, thanks to your guidance.

These wines delivered as promised lo, those many years ago. I wish I could have gotten more R-C, but I'm thrilled to have another 25 or so cases of 2001-2 Rieslings. I guess it's time to start regularly enjoying these, as they seem to be hitting their prime.
9:30 AM appointment this morning at Aldo Conterno. A great visit and conversation with winemaker Giacomo - a welcoming, down to earth man.

2011 Aldo Conterno Barbera d'Alba Conca Tre Pile
2010 Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello
2007 Aldo Conterno Barolo Cicala
2006 Aldo Conterno Barolo Gran Bussia Riserva

All fantastic, but of course the hands down WOTM (wine of the morning) was the Gran Bussia.

Would like to hear about this one.


awesome

and probably one of the most affordable beckstoffers on the market.

What g-man said.

Finishing up the last 1/3 of the bottle tonight. Really beautiful, clean fruit that doesn't get overpowered by the alcohol. Maybe the best 2011 napa I have tried.

Man, seems as though almost all my friends have had a cold lately. I hope this isn't foreshadowing a worse-than-usual cold and flu season. Get well soon.

How was this showing? I'm guessing pretty young for such a traditional producer.


+1 - I'd be very interested to hear how this showed.

25 cases or so of 2001-02 Rieslings Smile You have been flying under the radar for quite some time. Hope all is well with you and the family. The gang doesn't get together as often as we once did but still do on occasion. The participants have changed a bit, usually it consists of a few of us guys meeting out every so often. Not near as formal as it once was. We are getting together on 11/7/14 if you're interested. There will be 6 of us at the most. Love to see you again and share some great wine.

One of the best visits I have had in Piemonte was with Giacomo. A really beautiful estate with a commanding presence overlooking the Bussia vineyard. I'm sure you got the history lesson centered around the cru vineyards of Monforte as well.
