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.

Pure Sangiovese joy here. Tannins and oak have died down with good fruit

Nice offering. Super tight and big at first but after some work blossomed into a winner. Can certainly stand up to many more years in the cellar.
