Re: TN: 2009 Brovia Barolo Ca'Mia

Thanks Richard, I think you describe '09 very well. Adding fuel to the fire, Ca Mia tends to be warmer feeling at baseline.

'09 is tough. Few will make old bones and most didn't make new bones that well to start.

Re: TN: 2014 Clos Roche Blanche Touraine Cuvée Gamay (France, Loire Valley, Touraine)

I can safely predict two things about a Clos Roche Blanche TN on WB:

1. It is likely penned by Jay Miller
2. It will be a thoughtful, evocative note that makes me want to drink that wine.

Thanks Jay. Hope you and A are well
