Black current and vegatel (slight bell pepper, but not like California Cab's from 2011) with a hint of violet. Lovely bottle!

Too much oak and too much tannin. Couldn't find much that makes me believe its cab frac

Elena Pozzolini, the winemaker, explained that Scipio was the General that defeated Hannibal. This wine, clearly defeated all other wines tonight. Floral notes on the nose. Black fruit with a leathery texture and a long elegant finish violets and licorice.

Deep, spicy, vibrant cab franc with great integration of oak characteristics and well resolved tannin. Stony minerality; slightly hot, but otherwise fantastic
