Dark rich fruit with mocha and plummy deep stuff with mint and pepper. Velvety and long. Delicious.

Likely just beginning to show, powerful but also finessed, dried red roses, cherries, currants, tobacco, leather, cigar box and spices with silky tannins.

Courtesy of the handsome and ever-generous @Scott DeBenedett. This wine was similarly a totally smooth operator, sweet red and blue fruit tempered by savory earth, leather and tobacco. Elegant wine.

Big. Rich. Balanced. Young. Needs more time. I would say wait until it’s 15.

Rich nose but unexpectedly one-dimensional palate, deep red cherry core, beautiful, feminine tartiness with a slightly clipped finish vs similar Sassicaia vintages. Very good but not great.

Probably my fifth or so taste of this vintage, and it’s always been amazing. At age 20, it’s a refined and very elegant wine with great depth and complete purity on the lengthy finish. Very impressive.

Young but wonderful. Black fruit and still some strong tannins. Needs time BV
