Redcherries, cedar,  strong fruit and balanced undergrowth. Full body and great mouth feel.

Perfect cool Sunday evening wine. big on the sour cherries and a whiff of violet. A lot of earth to this but also a note of licorice. And blueberry jam. Actually I now want to jelly this wine and put it on Sunday morning pancakes. But for now I’ll drink it Sunday night.

Wood, spice, smoky mushrooms. Med+ acid. Vanilla that clearly says barrique without screaming it. Red fruit. Firm tannins.

Trying the 13 vintage. Really good, but only after many hours. Second day is when this wine starts shining. Cassis flavors. Smooth. Nicely structured.

Kicking it on a Saturday night in the backyard with a little sausage & sun dried tomato pasta sauce paired with Antinori Toscana. Decent stuff that paired nicely. Dark sweet & sour cherries, raspberries, poached strawberries, limestone minerals and bright red florals. The palate is round with medium tannins. Dark sweet & sour cherries, raspberries, poached strawberries, vanilla, limestone minerals, touch of soft leather, a little cedar, tobacco leaf, bright red florals, good acidity and finish.

Dark purple with black fruit aromas and spice. On the palate blackberry and plum fruit flavors with oak and pepper spice. Firm tannins and big acidity, medium balance on short ending. Ok but not great.
