A gift from a neighbor, this is a friendly and open red. Medium intensity nose shows red fruit (even a little strawberry), cigar box, and sandstone. Broad and flowing in the mouth. Tobacco leaf, plummy fruit, iodine. Ends on a lengthy savory note (the 20% Syrah signature?).

Great value! Not as strong as the 2010 but an incredible value nonetheless! Bold and juicy Smoky leather, red cherry, plum and cassis. 3.8 / 8.86

Tasty Super Tuscan from TJs. Very ripe, almost jammy red and blue fruits, some spice and cured meat aromas. Rich velvety mouthfeel. Still very fruit-forward for a 2010, and nicely balanced tannin and acid suggest this has some more time left. Will grab a couple more on my next visit.

When paired with Italian food this wine shines, not great as a stand alone wine. The nose is slightly smokey, with some oak, blackberry, and pepper. The taste is ripe dark berry fruit, red apple, pomegranate, vanilla, with hints of carmel and baking spice. Overall, the wine is good bang for your buck especially when paired with pizza, bucatini, or vodka sauce😀
