Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe red/black fruits with herbs, toast and sweet spice, aged for 24 months in American oak. On the palate flavors of ripe black cherry flavors with vanilla, oak and cacao notes, nice acidity balance with soft ripe tannins. Long finish ending with subtle fruit, tobacco, vanilla and toasty oak, drinking very well now! Still has room to age, but I think it’s great now.

Moderate to deep purple red, good clarity. Floral, candy apple and red fruit notes in nose. Complex flavors, spice, coffee, tea, needs more time to decant. Might be really great.

Both generous and lean at the same time: perfectly ripe black fruit and slight, elegant body with prominent tannic structure, minerality and leather notes. Oak tannins also showing, some coconut and dill points to American oak. Still young, but what promise.

This was drinking great--berries, tobacco, forest floor nose continuing on the palate with oak and mocha. Exudes elegance and warmth

2007. Riserva. Still youthful , but clearly the drinkability window is now.

Exactly how I wanted it to taste. Everything is there, can't imagine it tasting any better. Fruit, meat, mineral spice acidity and silky tannins everything in proportion. Just delicious right now.
