Default TN: '70 Cavalotto to replace '64 PdB Barbaresco

So 1964 Produttori di Barbaresco Barbaresco was on the menu for our week Zoom tasting. I had gotten 7 bottles out a few weeks in advance so people could stand up, mine was upright more than a month. That solved the sediment issue, but did nothing to help with the TCA, which had more than 50 years to really thoroughly contaminate my wine, wow Ive seldom experienced anything like that. Wet cardboard assaulted me the second the cork came out. Luckily I had a bottle of the 1970 Cavallotto "Bricco Boschis" Barolo that had been sitting up since Feb (cancelled tasting in March). A little grumpy and soy-ish at first, within couple of hours pretty classic Nebbiolo- black and red cherry, lots of leather, a little tar and truffle. Tannins resolved, good acids, maybe not the longest but quite tasty. A-

Some of the others got pretty bottles of the PdB, couple advanced, one totally maderized. Cest la vie.

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

Thanks for the notes, Dale. I wish I could join you guys in those Zoom
tastings ;-)

I've done some driving to make logistics happen for this (Westchester and NYC) but even for me IN might be a bit far.
This group is doing full bottles, so limiting what we can do (these were my last 8 '64 PdB). Looking for some group buys -2 members are very high risk and not willing to split bottles like my local group, which makes it daunting (I personally can't see risk but....).
I was invited to another one tonight with many people you know from city, they use mini-bottles to split a 750 into 3 oz pours, but I am on streets tonight.
Cheers, be safe
