A mix of red and dark fruit with notes of walnuts, pine cones, spices and moist earth. Medium- to full-bodied, velvety and mouth-filling, with powdery tannins and a firm, lightly chewy finish. Sustainable.

A dense, muscular red, featuring blackberry, plum, earth, wild thyme and tobacco flavors. A beam of acidity keeps this defined as the finish echoes fruit, earth and savory accents. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Ripe black cherry fruit is at the core of this red, along with accents of iron, tar, eucalyptus and spice. This is balanced, lingering on the finish with elements of fruit, wild herbs, mineral and spice. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2023 through 2033.

Though rich and saturated with notes of plum, cherry, peppery greens and earth, this red is vibrant and resonant. The dense, dusty tannins compress the finish a little today, leaving a chalky sensation. Shows some muscle. Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2021 through 2040.

Aromas of berries and chocolate with hints of cedar. Full body, tight and chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Very structured for this. Needs two or three years to soften. Try after 2021

Aromas of blueberries, blackberries and moss follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a juicy, fruity, fresh finish. Savory and lightly salty. Excellent to drink now but better in two or three years. A delicious wine for a good price. Predominantly Sangiovese. – JS (November 2012)
