Lethbridge Birthday Present Nebbiolo 2016: Review

Very good classy wine. Lethbridge Birthday Present Nebbiolo 2016 has great fruit concentration and length and shows excellent wine making skills. The tannins are deftly handled and as a result this wine drinks well now but will age wonderfully and become more complex. This could easily be stored for 10 years. This wine was tasted three times, first at the winery cellar door, then over two evenings. The fruit flavours are dominated by sour cherry and dark berries. They are complimented by cedar-like flavours and aromas. Medium to full bodied. This nebbiolo is a lovely wine and well worth finding. A birthday present indeed.
