Plastic Barolo?

Massolino, Barolo, 2003. $63 at Palate Food and Wine.

This had stewed black fruits and a sweet chocolate quality, the downside is it was maybe a little "plasticy" too. Like smelled like plastic. Still, Barolo for $63 - what do you want people??  The alcohol shows through a little, but the tannins are pretty soft and this is a fully enjoyable bottle of wine for the money. 

We had a terrific meal at Palate given a few snafoos (is that a word??). Still the company was good and the wine was good and there you have it!
