Nice surprise. The visual experience wasn't very promising. The nose was nice, but not enticing. But it surely delivered at the palate. Black fruit, well balanced tannins. Unusual blend (68% Cabernet Franc, 22% Merlot, and 10% cabernet Sayignon), but definitely, a winner.

Possibly one of the finest examples of Cabernet Franc outside of Bordeaux. A true "Super" Tuscan in the truest since of the word. Deep, dark, rich, and complex. Drink now if you must, but if you have patience you will be rewarded.

A beautiful red! Dark color, feels almost sweet at first, firm tannins, peppery finish.
