Second bottle in less than a week and this is a smokeshow. Pure Cab. Such a good wine. What a nose. Tobacco, cigar, not Marlboro, awesome layered cassis, ripe berry, so ebullient, better aromas than my first bottle. This is really something else. Mint, raspberry. So complex and inviting. Palate is just so silky and structured. Concentrated like a mofo and man is it pure and juxtaposed with such intense minerality and it is mega fresh because it’s Tuscan Cabernet. Superb. Just superb. So hard to get wines like this right. Tuscan soul, Bordeaux heart, Ca cab 70’s brain. Like a Graves/St. Estephe cross. Gravelly and woodsy. Really tows that line between ripeness and freshness so well.

New vintage. Nose is spicey, complex with an alluring cassis and tobacco profile. Good minerals and leather. Palate is juicy, structured and so deep. Delicious and as good as the 2016. Structured and meant to age but has explosively pure and deep fruit. Massive fruit. So concentrated and so fresh. Awesome. There is some mild oak that is not distracting as the structure, mineralIty and fruit is so impressive. Elite Bordeaux level here. Terrific. 9.4 with almost no air. Will track.
