Still at cellar temp and too cold to fully assess - But delicious sour cherry notes and a wonderful singed herb spiciness to this

Delicious. Dark purple color, aromas of plum, toast, mashed bramble berry. Intense, deep and still polished/softish tannin. Feels like there could be Merlot here. Good w homemade Bolognese.

Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.

Insanely dry and tannic. Dark in the glass too. Could almost chew the finish. Charcoal smoke, dusted blackberries, violets, potpourri and underripe plum. Hold. I called this mid-late ‘00s left bank Bordeaux.

Very dark Sangiovese, especially for a 8 year old wine, but surprisingly fresh and long. Fruit-forward with berry and spice notes.

Beautiful expression of Sangiovese... Not like these new school overly fruit-forward Tuscan wines. Masculine, leather, balanced tannin... 2009 not a heralded vintage, but this was a very enjoyable wine.

Deep toned dark fruit and spice aromatics. Palate is pure black fruits w a superb acid lift. Long long finish. Lovely
