    Default 1985 Corvo Duca Enrico Rosso

    Ok, I promised to post this but I only do it as a novelty as the wine
    was undrinkable. 1985 Corvo Duca Enrico Rosso-The cork was in great
    condition although it was the shortest cork I've ever pulled...maybe 3
    cm. The wine was very brickish in the glass perhaps slightly more red
    than brown. Very sweet nose of rotting fruits and the sickningly
    sweet smell of ethyl acetate. One sip and done....very high levels of
    VA with no redeeming features...down the drain...yuck. What I do in
    the name of wine astounds me sometimes.

    That latter statement could very well be the winegeek's credo (or
    epitaph), Bill. Well said!

    LOL! If you think of all the "off the wall" things that you've done
    for a glass of wine over the years they really add up to a sizeable
    portfolio of lunacy. I've driven hundreds of miles out of the way to
    visit some"mythical" wine maker only to find plonk or a nutcase. I've
    walked dozens and dozens and dozens of vineyards in searing heat or
    driving rain, scaled small mountains or walked miles through poison
    ivy to see a vineyard that a vintner insists will make a difference in
    my understanding of their wines only to see...grapevines and dirt or
    mud. I have sat through incredibly boring flights of uninteresing,
    pedestrian table wines to get a taste of some promised magic elixer
    only to find that the elixer is sold out. I have a cupboard full of
    the obligatory "free" glasses after paying a $20 tasting fee at a Napa
    winery to taste through their line-up only to find that they are not
    pouring the one wine you really wanted to try because the price puts
    it at a point where you won't buy until you taste. And, I quit
    counting the hundreds and hundreds of glasses of extraordinarily
    average fermented grape juice to find that one magic moment that makes
    it all worth it.

    Wow, that's the truth. I have never thought of the ridiculous lengths
    and dead end roads I have gone down to taste a wine someone told me
    was great only to find out it wasn't even close and, in some instances
    was some of the worst things I have ever put in my mouth. On the other
    hand, my wife and two other friends and I got drunk with David Bruce
    with several of his library wines because we called and got him on the
    telephone personally on a whim.
