A youthful Tig drinks as well young as any super Tuscan out there....but with some bottle age this is in a really sexy spot. Happy Friday wine people.

WNH event number two. Rhône varietal wines with TX BBQ...a match made in Heaven!

Another leftover bottle from last night’s Italian theme. Obviously super young, but in the name of research, it was fun to see how this tastes...this is a big and structured Tig. Almost bruising right now. Toes the line between underripe and herbal and fruit forward in style. There is mocha, fig, cocoa dusted bay leaf, and blackberries on the nose. Big on the palate with more dark cocoa shavings, a rich black cherry liqueur and a unique licorice and oregano finish. Give this some time before it becomes a knockout. Thanks for bringing

Very good but not great Tig; younger than it should’ve been, rich.

Very well integrated flavours, but SO overpriced. I have brunellos and chiantis that outperform this wine any day of the week. Don't get me wrong, it's still fantastic... but you can do better if you're going to spend $100+

This 375 was is a perfect spot, showing about as well as a Tig can show in an off year. Oak totally faded, sweet and sour red cherry Sangiovese nicely resolved, velvety smooth, beautifully long. Drink up.

I will preface this note by disclosing that I am generally not a fan of Super Tuscans. I like old school Toscana. But I will try to be objective here. The nose is very evocative of a classified growth Bordeaux: lots of cedary, gravelly scents and some dark berry fruit underneath. In the mouth it is concentrated and soft, but develops weight in the back half of the palate. Some peppery heat from alcohol at the end too. I know it’s predominantly Sangiovese, but it really does taste very Left Bank, except for a little note redder fruit at the end.
