Very much alive, showing a nice core of dried red fruits framed by leather, cigar, sweet brown spice, Pernod, vanilla, hoisin and chestnut. The acid considerably fresh, tannins are integrated and soft, the sweet oak is present but mingles well with the aged-Sangiovese character.

Sangiovese from Napa - not much lost in translation. 1997 vintage has aged very gracefully.

Nice. Pretty nose. Nice mouthfeel but flavor is hinting at age or not perfect cellaring

1998 vintage. Something off - believe the wine was exposed to prolonged heat at some point. Nonetheless, if you look past the tomato paste there was an underlying beauty. Hope to have better luck with the other bottles.
