Earthy and dusty on the nose, while also offering up blue fruits. The palate is fruit forward, a touch savory on the back notes. Tannins are present but soft and balanced by a nice acidity. Pop and pour though it did evolve in glass. @Severn Goodwin - half price bottle night is over!

Smooth & easy to drink. Complemented our Father's Day barbecue very well.

Nice Chianti in a traditional style. Cherry flavor and sour finish. Cherry nose. Excellent but not interesting.

Rich, fruity nose. Hints of cassis and vanilla. Mild tannins. A bit chalky perhaps.

Old-world bouquet. Hints of leather and strong tannin. Overall it is a little one-dimensional. Could use more depth and body.
