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.

Blend of Sangiovese, Malbec, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Cassis, raspberry jam and wood notes in nose. Cherry with length in mouth, pomegranate, cola and heavy spicy wood aftertaste. Rich, slightly tart, flavor complexity, balanced fruit and wood. Some fine grain seed tannin and moderate skin astringency. More wood than I'm used to; drink now

Opaque garnet with deep purple edges.
Sangiovese dominated red currant nose.
Balanced acid driven, velvet to rounded tannins, with a bit of alcohol heat.
A super Tuscan-like definitively California wine;)

Cedar, mint, and dark fruit on the nose. Lovely mouthfeel with light tannins. Dry finish with ripe cherry. Quite nice and balanced.

25th anniversary... excellent, well balanced, nice dark fruits, and agree with coffee/ chocolate flavors. Always been a favorite, but this is over the top. Highly recommended and hope to find/enjoy again.

Very nice Sonoma blend. Riot forward with a spice finish.
