The 2015 Tâm emerges from the estate's best vineyards, those located on the southern reaches of the estate. Bright floral notes play off the ripe fruit beautifully in this sumptuous Bolgheri red. Lavender, sage, plum, and blueberry jam add aromatic nuance throughout. The 2015 was aged in equal parts cask and barrel. The larger-format casks seems to add a good bit of freshness.

Powerful but light on its feet, this is a very angular and serious wine robed in a deep red core with ruby edges.
60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Cabernet Franc aged for 24 months in French oak barrels.
The nose reveals the Tuscan coast terroir here with scents of wild flower meadows, earth and minerality in the form or crushed rocks, with a cedar note that adds a seasoning to the black raspberry, cherry and currants. The palate reveals some serious complexity, adding some graphite to the melange of fruits and earth. The tannin are ripe and firm with a full body tempered by acidity that flows into a long, clean finish.

Vintage 2008 tasted Mar 2015 - 1st night at parent's villa in Naples, Florida. No decant needed. Smooth, med-to-light bodied. Enjoyed well with flank steak, but would show better with slightly lighter fare.

Killer Wine Night. Lineup of 17 wines. Tasted blind. Theme was Old World Killer “B” (the letter “B” has to be the first letter in one of the proper nouns in the wine e.g., region, varietal, type, winery name, etc.)

Wine 12. Young. Black cherry wet earth, and leather.

RIDICULOUSLY suave super Tuscan. Overall, I have very little complaints about this wine. Buy. Drink. Repeat many times.
