Fully confirms my unsolicited opinion that Cab Sauv is one of the most uninteresting grape varietals on the planet

Ripe fruit, blueberry, plum, dark cherry, dried floral, leather, cocoa, milk chocolate, bigger tannins balanced by med acidity.

Undeniably Italian despite the bordelaise blend. Macerated plum, tinder box, violet potpourri.

Lots of layers here. Warm res fruits and some clove notes followed by some wood bark, a touch of dark chocolate, and some pepper.

Birthday celebration for @Cody Uzzel at Lucio’s with a bunch of friends. All wines (except sparklers) tasted blind.
.
I really enjoyed this wine: chiseled, muscular, and full of life. Cherries, blackberries, pipe tobacco. A fun pick!

Drank over several hours after decanting. Still a fair amount of tannins and acid. Enjoyable but I like their Sangiovese blends better, particularly at this price point.

Blackberries and dark fruits on the nose. Fruit forward. Velvety. Slightly spicy on the finish. Medium tannins.
