Wow. Nose is very ripe fruit forward. Blue and black berry, bramble, herbal spice. Oregano seems right. Green forest breeze. Some dirt on the palette. ‘‘Tis a good table Super Tuscan. — 4 days ago

Monte Rosso Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

100% Cab Sauv from Sonoma and its a beauty. Aged for 27 months in about 80% new oak, majority French, with a bit of American oak. Aromas of black fruit, spice and cedar. On the palate flavors of blackberry, blueberry and currants with notes of licorice, tobacco and cacao. Great mouthfeel (high alcohol), full-bodied, ripe big tannins, well balanced on long lingering finish ending with smoky earthy character. Wow!! — 14 days ago

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

This is not an old style Chianti but very good. I drank it with pizza. Nice berry flavors and acidity to cleanse the palate. Easily stood up to garlic only making the garlic sweeter and allowing nice finishing notes. It’s 9 years old...probably will only get better over the next 5 years before it oxidizes away. Don’t let that happen. — 8 days ago

Fuori Strada Off Road Sangiovese 2015

Nice! Decanting helped, since it was rather tight upon unscrewing the box. Smokiness and earthy chalk, followed by tart plum (pomegranate) and slight butterscotch on the sides of my tongue. Will consider buying again. — 7 days ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1997

Mind-blowingly good. Powerful, cassis-driven nose led a silky, layered tapestry of cedar, more cassis, old red cherry and fully resolved tannins. We didn’t decant but it faded from its peak within 30 mins of PnP, so drink up. — 6 days ago
