Ripe and enveloping. A bit of mint, dark fruit, Chocolately notes. Technically good but a little indistinct. Time in bottle should help

Dark fruit. Hints of green pepper, blood and Smokey red fruit. Intense and very pure on the palate. Dark fruit, great texture and persistence. Lovely mouthfeel.

Ripe blackberry and cassis, jalapeño and mint, medium + acid backbone and extremely noticeable tannins, but smooth with great finish. Paired with beef wellington...

Night 1 of the Fall WNH event in San Antonio. What a killer start to the extended weekend, all courtesy to Shawn and Jennifer for hosting! Tonight was Italian wines.

Another in the running for WOTN. Maple and rich! Cherry and vanilla tobacco on the nose with herbal spice and a strawberry tart finish. Young and acidic! There is a very underripe red fruit dominant profile here. Crazy how young it tastes for 23yrs old. Bravo

Sipping Fine Wine

Began in 1944, Mario Incisa acquired Cab Sauv & Franc vine cuttings, planted them on San Guido estate, called Castiglioncello, Sassicaia, "the place of many stones". A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc. Beautiful fruit & spice aromas. Berry fruit flavors with spice, leather and cacao, powerhouse. Fine tannins allows current enjoyment. Lingering, silky smooth ending with slight earthy coffee character. Question how well the ‘15 will age? It’s great, but $200, I’ll pass. Tasting Sample.
