A small subset of the Nebbiolo Knights was able to gather in NYC for two evenings of wine, food, and camaraderie. This evening focused on the 1985 vintage. The 2nd evening was 1989 Barolo and much more successful for the wines.

I took Amtrak down from Albany. The Amtrak travel magazine had cover photo of Patti Smith by my friend Brad Trent, a renowned photographer and a wine buff.

Amali was good and reasonably priced. This might be the last 1985 dinner we do since it wasn't a great showing and the WOTN was an 82!

Cheese and Meat for the table.

Flight 2
Pappardelle Bolognese.

Flight 3
Braised Rabbit Cacciatore over Escarole, Cannellini Beans, House Bacon, Black Pepper.
The rabbit was so-so, but the greens and beans underneath were delicious.

Chocolate Hazelnut Torte, Brownie Brittle, toasted milk gelato.


We've had better examples of these same wines. Still, I do think it is time to drink up most 1985s.
