L.A. Cetto Private Reserve Nebbiolo 2008, Guadalupe Valley, Baja California
$18.95 at LCBO
That was a surprise!
Nebbiolo? From Mexico?! I was intrigued!
Rich, brilliant ruby color color in the glass.
On the nose lots of black berries, cherries, oak.
On the palate dry, medium to full bodied. Flavours continue develop on the palate. Lot of fruit, black berries, spice, quite tangible acidity and tannins, getting softer after decanting. Some minerality.
Long fruity finish.
It was lovely wine. Of course different form Italian Nebbiolo, but nice and rich.
