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.

Nice aroma of vanilla spice and berry. Very even pallet. Smooth 13.5 alc. finishes with just the right tannins. Good price point.

Great aromas. Full bodied but with a sweet twist. Raspberries... Had it with everything possible! Good wine to have and to offer!

Very big hit of gunflint and sulfur takes several minutes to blow off leaving ripe dark fruit with slight herbaceous whiffs. Warm plum fruit on the palate gives few clues about varietal content. A decent enough wine that doesn't thrill me.

Blackberry, cherry, even a little olive with the leather. Damn tasty.

Tobacco, dark fruit, Velvety tannins. This will do the trick on a cold NYC night.
