Read like really high quality new world syrah. Interesting to taste next to the sulfured version which read more old world. — 3 months ago
This has California written all over the nose, sweet sourdough bread yeast.
Some sharp berry lies down the walkway for some other cool fruits to come a Prancin’- Bing cherry, mulberry, mint, raspberry licorice, and a highly vibrant kumquat acid that really shocks and awes.
Can u dig it?
Yes I can.
-edit- After some open air, this really shows a vegetal tone, like a shishito pepper stalk.. — a year ago
Holding up very nicely. Could probably use a bit of decanting to open up with next bottle. Bold rich flavor and lots of pepper on the back end. — 3 months ago
Color of dark ruby, yet quite clear. Nose of vanilla, chocolate, a bit oak, and a bit strawberry. Taste is spicy, peppery, pure and round, dried strawberry, oak, a bit grassy, subtle and refined acidity, a bit salty bacon note, and low tannins. Aftertaste is smooth with more spicy note, oak, a bit plum and dates, a bit of mineral, and no edge savory. Only drawback is the nose, or she will be great. — 2 years ago
Medium yellow gold. Bracing, orange fruited, orange blossom, hint of pithy grapefruit, snappy nasturtium/peppery undertone. I feel the new world weight and breadth on the palate compared to the next wine.... — 4 months ago
Pomegranate, bee pollen, red cherry, nice Indian spices, fruit stripe gum, red licorice, nice body. — 4 years ago

Love the Focchini. A raw wine but should develop nicely. Beautiful plum aromas and tons of minerality. Big tannins on the finish. — 7 years ago
