Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says
The 2009 Joseph nebbiolo is mid-red in the glass and shows dried cherry and plum fruits, gentle dark rosepetal fragrance, an array of bracken and spice and a strong thread of fennel seed and anise. The palate frames a fleshy core in sturdy, assertive tannins, sweet creamy oak spice and a lithe, juicy finish. Terrific form here.

This is looking fully ripened in 2008, and was released earlier than just about all the others. It has mixed, plump-smelling boysenberry and blueberry fruits, spicy aniseed complexity, and a slice of toasty, mocha-scented oak. The palate has plenty of richness and vivacious fleshy fruit presence; the oak twists coconut flavours through red-cherry fruits. Tannins gather pace through the back, and there's juicy acid crunch to finish. More time, please.

Definitely give this some time in decanter; it really opens up and fills out. The nose is right in the varietal zone with rose petals, dark cherry, plenty of spice and red fruits - attractive toasty oak too. Strong licorice and anise on the palate with a smooth carpet of tannin throughout. There's a sweetness and approachable side to the palate, but the fragrance is the most striking feature for now. Striking - one of the signatures of the 2007 vintage.

One of Joe Grilli's finest to date, it sports anise and cassia bark aromas, cedary oak and earthy cherry fruits. Beautiful poise and grace on the palate, smooth from the very outset, it builds tannins and intensity in layers and loads sweet juicy cherry fruit into every corner of the mouth, baking spices to close. Very young, very balanced and very good.
