Very pretty & broad shouldered at the same time. Lots to chew on. Thinking about my Napa friends tonight. 12% alc — 3 months ago
Tasted with 1980. Beautiful wine, & the similarities between the two were amazing- terroir wise. — 6 months ago
Very pretty wine, strawberry fruit & rose petal aromas. A core of red fruits, smooth with great balance, nothing is out of place. 14% alc/vol — 7 months ago
Very enjoyable stylistically, balance wise & elegance. Definitely well crafted! It was a bit shut down, & would like more complexity at that price. May be bottle variation, will open 2nd bottle in a few years, but also will try to source more recent vintages. 13.5% alc — 5 months ago
Big bold smooth & ripe 2006. More on the masculine side focused on dark fruits & earthiness. 14.5% alc/vol — 7 months ago
90% Syrah, 5% Sangiovese, 5% Merlot.
Definitely shows how beautiful Syrah is in a warmer spot with very low yields- pretty perfume, & incredible mid palate unctuous fruit. Yum. — 5 months ago
Some of the highest elevation vineyards in Montalcino. Pretty red fruit finesse with some earthy forest floor notes. Well balanced in the mid palate. 13.5% alcohol (which makes all the difference, bright fruit & Med weight) — 7 months ago
