Great acid and tannic structure. Like traipsing through the woods after a warm mid-summer rain. Wet eucalyptus, mulch, and lilies.

Really good. Dark cherry, earth, some tobacco. Big and long. Fairly complex.

100% Sangiovese. 24 mo barrique aging. Oak is fully integrated. Nice Sangiovese bite. Glad I have more!

Not for sipping unless a good sixty minutes before in a decanter. Typical characteristics of a CCR...plus some good old "Gaul women" smoke on the back end. Will go beautifully with tonight's charred fatty T-bone. A few left in the cellar...drink up...its arrived...and will only head South from here.

Lovely cherry nose. Smooth black fruit with a hint of earth and peach in the mouth. Nice medium acidity finish.

Black Cherry. Some Earthy on nose. Fruit upfront. Nice acidity in finish. Nicely paired with seafood tomato stew.
