Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) Incredible aromas here with blueberries, spices, licorice, plums. Graphite too. Subtle and complex. Full and silky with a beautiful texture of fine tannins and an ultra-fine finish.

    Full, juicy, sexy. Beautiful example of a super Tuscan. Tasted a touch 'american'. Too toasted... If I had to say SOMETHING. Lush mouth feel

    (2005 Vintage) Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 04/09 The cabernet franc (15 percent) here seems to wrap the cassis and black cherry richness of cabernet sauvignon with the spiciness of fresh red peppercorns. Savory and bound for several hours, this becomes silky and elegant with air, the rich fruit supported by firm, earthy tannins. Deep and impressively structured, this is suited for a decade or more in the cellar.
