WTN: California in the Langhe

Giacomo Conterno, Barbera d'Alba, 'Ceretta', 2009
15% alcohol, and it shows. Blueberry and blackberry syrup. Unctuous, thick and extracted. A Parkerism - creosote - works pretty well here. This feels overwrought and expensive for what is a pizza wine. Feels very New World. The second day, shows a little better, but still, this is a BIG wine.

I had an '07 early this year and swore off the wine for good.
