It is a Secret Santa gift. Note said ready to enjoy, CT tasting notes suggest otherwise. We are going out to a restaurant for dinner tonight. Take it? Decant the crap out of it for an hours and put it back in the bottle? Let it rest and grab something out of the cellar?

Haven't tried the 2010, but these are generally backward monsters. Still with a lot of air, it will show something.

Thanks, I grab something else and hide this on the bottom shelf.

I had a 2006 a month or two ago and "backwards monster" barely captures the mouth-spanking tannins and hidden fruit. Bury it deep

Same with 2007 I had a tear ago. Delicious, riveting wine, but very tight, rustic and brooding.

I think these are serious long agers, but in my experience they don't really go through a "closed" phase. Granted I haven't tried (but I do own) this vintage, but they can be very tasty young with a decant.

Brian,

Hide it for a long time but if you're Brett-adverse, sell or trade it. Galardi used to be my favorite Italian wine. Have gone through quite a few cases of it. But I started noticing 4-EP/4-EG in the 2006 vintage. The 2008 had so much I couldn't drink it. Was told the 2010 was clean so I bought a six-pack. Big mistake. Brett-city. But if you like Brett, you'll love this wine.

Backwards-monster reputation notwithstanding, the 2009 was insanely drinkable for me recently. Maybe a good choice if you want to try one young.

The 2010 was showing really well when I tasted it, but that was around two years ago. It may have shut down since then. The CT notes I've read suggest others found it open when I did, but that it has since closed up.

Wow, great feedback guys! I had a feeling this would be best served in another decade. We brought a 2003 Lagier Merepdith Syrah instead which is a just a few year closer to maturity than the Italian.

Mike, I'm not nearly as sensitive to brett as you are so a little barnyard won't affect me. Thanks for the heads-up though. It will definitely affect my drinking decision.
