1988 Gaja Barbaresco - TheEngineer - 11-04-2012 10:02 PM

We had a wine dinner in prep for an up coming auction. The auction house and the company at dinner were outstanding. The restaurant (Toque) was also outstanding, the food done incredibly well. I'm posting on the wines that were at the tasting and some that people brought to the event to share. Regardless of whether I thought the wine was good or not, I appreciated the opportunity to taste them and learn from them

1988 Gaja Barbaresco - I was really looking forward to this one, nose
was muted, mostly secondary, meaty, but lifeless, nothing there, no
fruit any more, no structure to accompany, lifeless and limp.

Bad Bottle?
