Dark purple/ruby in color with a reddish rim and medium intensity.
Strong nose of cherries, red currants, bitter herbs, earth, vegetables, light thyme, wood, spices, black tea and peppercorn.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Very dry on the palate with currants, sour cherries, tangy strawberries, light oak, spices, earth, bitter herbs, tobacco leaf, bitter vegetables and peppercorn.
Medium finish with round tannins and tangy pomegranates.
This is a nice Italian Sangiovese.
Tangy and spicy. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Still young and would be better in 5 years. Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and bring the tannins to play. The high alcohol is nicely integrated, so watch out.
A good food wine that will pair nicely with pizza.
100% Sangiovese grapes were grown at 1,500 feet of elevation and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Kosher and not Mevushal.
15% alcohol by volume.

Wow. From Maggie Harrison at Antica Terra, this is one of the best ones I’ve had from that winery. It doesn’t quite have the depth and complexity of her top-end wines (e.g., Cerras)…but it is also spectacular at this young of an age (as opposed to the higher end ones, which I think need several years in bottle before they really start to sing). In this regard, this wine is kind of like an off-scale Rosso di Montalcino that you enjoy while you wait for the brunellos to come of age. This wine was fantastic. Amazing fruit, perfect balance, and expanded beautifully on the palate. Just terrific. — 21 days ago
Hall Wines- terra secca - 2016 - cabernet sauvignon - Napa Valley. Italian for dry earth, terra secca describes the soil from where these grapes were born. From the eastern hillsides of Napa Valley comes this amazing cabernet sauvignon. I love a juicy, yet bold, dry wine with a leftover buttery texture on the tongue. I feel it helps to neutralize the dry finish and makes this wine go KA POW! “May I have another?” — 17 days ago
Smokey merlot forward this blend is pleasant and light. Smooth mouth feel with a tannin tease near finish. Light bodied but bold enough to hold its own. — 11 days ago
