Fresh violets, black cherries half-cooked, near prunes, strong fresh cut hay, blackberry reduced and fortified, chopped oak, cedar, mushroom coffee. Chewy beauty spills red and black cherries across the palate. Light sarsaparilla tones enhance a complex array of thyme, oregano, herbs de Provence, espresso that turns rose tea. Rich with power and resonance that literally won’t quit!

1994 Ornellaia Bolgheri Superiore
Off vintage. A difficult year. Lighter in color than expected. The red fruits were very much alive but on a very delicate structure. Still enjoyable but wanted more from
Ornellaia. (Edited: On the second day, Ornellaia delivered! Wow. It is still delicate but in a perfect harmony.)

Muted nose of twig and tight cherry, cranberry and allspice. Dense black, ripe and dried cherry with leather cedar and clove, a dried blackberry component, very clean tobacco note, rosemary, and thyme. Cascading layers of coffee, oak, raspberry.

When I first tasted this with Coravin we were sure it had TCA, but it wasn’t excessively bitter or astringent and it had plenty of rich ripe black fruit...so I uncorked it today and the cork definitely smells of old winery, old church and almost pine trees but I wouldn’t call it corked cork. Even with the cork issue the wine has a smooth oily attack and firm fine-grained tannins. I am thoroughly enjoying it. #bolgheri #tuscany #italy #supertuscan The winery should definitely look into their cork provider. — a year ago
perfume of dark berries, fig, baking spices & tobacco ~ the dark berry flavors lean a touch jammy but are in check by a quick pop of crunchy red fruit, some Asian spices, and a hint of Mediterranean herbs ~ plush mouthfeel w soft dry finish ~ lovely #SuperTuscan to follow next 15 yrs! — 2 years ago
Bakers chocolate, cardamom, herbs de Provence, roses, suede, tobacco, coffe and black cherry. Red tart and black cherry power palate with brooding chocolate, rich raspberry and cherry reductions, crispy sage, light graphite, and finally tight plum and blackberry. .

Delightful #supertuscan #toscanaigt blend with heady dark fruit + a delicate touch of toasted oak and vanilla on the nose. Palate balances rich fruit with acidity and distinctive earthy-spice notes from Sangiovese. Tannins are elegant. Matched up nicely with grilled beef burgers. Excellent QPR for ~$11. — 2 years ago
