Here are wines that I tasted in January and February of the first two months of this new decade.
Also, I was delighted to have attended both Nebbiolo Prima and the Grandi Langhe in Alba, Italy and ZinEx (Zinfandel Experience) in San Francisco. More exciting experiences to come in the next few months…. so stayed tuned!
