Great table wine — 20 days ago
This is an extremely dark wine, inky black, and it smells of black plums, blackberries and black cherries. The palate shows a terrific display of said fruit with a savory blanket of spice and licorice thrown over it. The tannins are a bit tame, but that fault does make for an extremely sippable wine. It will pair nicely with pork or tomato-based dishes. — 12 days ago
Good but certainly not great Brunello. The elements are all there but it just misses the mark with a thin mid-palate. Finished nicely with lots of black tea notes and tannins. Wish it had a bit more fruit to balance out the tannins. — 3 days ago
Simple pizza dinner with David June 9 BD. Interesting Tuscan Sangiovase not from Chianti but further south Morellino Scansano and has more weight and dimension. Nose particularly compelling with mix of cherries berries and forest notes. Silky palate and good finish. AA18. — 10 days ago

This is a nice wine from Napa Valley. Tangy, spicy and interesting with a nice mouthfeel.
Still young, but already drinking nicely. Feels like an Italian red with a new world twist.
Easy drinking and needs time to open up a property. I gave it 90 minutes.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a Brie cheese. Will pair nicely with pizza.
A blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Merlot. Aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels (35% new).
