Default 1990 Caymus Cab, 1997 Einaudi Barolo

WIth lunch of braised Kobe shortribs:
1990 Caymus Napa Cabernet- showing a touch of age with a slight
brickish tint. Medium weight in the glass. Very plummy on the nose
with a fair amount of dusty notes. Red berries and plum on the
palate, a bit of leather and cedar. Well resolved tannins with an
almost sweet finish. Nice wine. "A-"

1997 Luigi Einaudi Barolo Cannubi-Light red color with some pink at
the rim. Bright red fruit nose with plenty of typical Barolo floral
rose notes. Fairly powerful on the palate with plenty of acidic
backbone. Red cherry, exotic spice flavors and a fair amount of
tannin on the finish but a terrific foil to the rich Kobe beef. "A"

Nice notes. I have one bottle of the '97 Einaudi normale left. As you
might expect, not the power you describe in the Cannubi, but a nice
wine.

Barolo is a tough wine for me to love sometimes. It is a wine that
requires food in order to really get all of the nuances since without
food it can be brutal or charmless. Just when I think I should sell
off the Barolo's in my cellar I drink one that is stunning and the
light bulb comes on and I have one of those 'Ah-ha" moments.
