Intriguing wine - the Barbera nicely rounds out the Sangiovese tannins making it incredibly food-friendly. Palate is perfectly balanced if not particularly showy.

Best wine in the joint (with the possible exception of Monte Bello). Old vine Grenache blends harmoniously with the Syrah from this warmer spot in Dry Creek. Huge berry nose; beautiful mix of fruit and earth on the seamless palate; the finish lengthy. — 12 days ago
About a dozen times enjoyed over the last ten years or so, this is always an absolute stunner, especially with sushi. Great acidic lift and bright stone fruit with subtle spice - kind of Pinot Grigio flavors with Riesling structure and mouthfeel. — 9 days ago
