Sledgehammer Merlot from @Joe Lucca and my first exposure to this maker. Loved it. Big fruit, racy, deep blue and black fruit.

Night 1 of the Fall WNH event in San Antonio. What a killer start to the extended weekend, all courtesy to Shawn and Jennifer for hosting! Tonight was Italian wines.

Dominant Merlot. Great depth. Extracted blackberries on the nose with new saddle leather. Bloodied plum and muddled raspberries. This is a beautiful wine! Nice bottle

Best wine on the table. Nose of wildflowers, red fruit, black cherry, red licorice. Entry of black cherry, tobacco, cola, goes darker to the finish. Still has quite a bit of astringency on the finish as well with chalky bit stiff oak tannin. I love these wines, and also just not seen all that often. No way I would have guessed that this was an 07.
