25th Anniversary of their Sangiovese blend. I needed pliers to open the screw cap so this better deliver. Dense purple red, highly extracted pigment. Cherry, black currant, tutti frutti and cedar wood notes alternate with a hint of mint in nose initially. Similar flavors in mouth, few tannins at first, rounded mouthfeel, citric and lactic acidity in finish and aftertaste. Needs time to open. Fine grained but highly astringent and woody skin tannins emerge after ten minutes. Tannins mellow, wine drinkable after 30 minutes. Cherry flavors and slightly bitter, chewy, moderately astringent tannins dominate. Worth waiting on this one.

A great red blend from Sonoma. Gray color great nose, easy drinking and tasty.

Showing red and black fruits with chocolate notes.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish/ purple rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, blackberries, vanilla, licorice, earth, wood, light vegetables, spices, herbs, chocolates, pencil lead and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, black currants, vanilla, coffee, mocha, licorice, spices, beef jerky, and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and raspberries.

This is a tasty red blend from Sonoma County, California. Well balanced with a great mouthfeel. Showing nice complexity, but lost its tannins by now. Better to have it as a 3 year old.

Very enjoyable by itself, as a sipping wine, or with food. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up.

What's interesting about this Sonoma blend is it really tastes like a traditional California field blend: lots of Zinfandel and Syrah. According to the bottle this is a Sangiovese/Malbec/Petite Syrah/Cabernet Sauvignon blend, which was quite a surprise to find out. Very fruity, even candied, this wine doesn't show much complexity. It is light in body with a short finish.

Very drinkable, under $20 blend. 2011 especially good, other recent vintages not so hot.
