This has another gear, with a nose filled with briar wood, grilled beef, violet pastille, earth, wild flowers, and some white pepper spice all layered over rich earthy berry fruit. Seamless, powerful, deep and chewy on the palate, this gives a fine old viney palate impression filled with mineral infused blackberry flavors, notes of aromatic pipe tobacco, leather, wood spice, blackberry and a touch of RC cola as well. Just packed with masses of fruit and layers of complexity,with an attractive edge of rusticity. There’s a little heat here and it’s easy to knock the wine for it, but there’s simply too much else going on for that to matter much. 94pts

They only produce 4 varietal of Reds, Merlot, Syrah, Cab, and Zin, and they don't sell anything less that 9 years old. Currently working on their 2003 vintage. They are located at 5185 Union Road, across the street from Pear Valley. The owner is from Italy, and makes his own pasta and sauce, sausage, and salami, which he serves in his restaurant, which is on site. His fresh pizza's are to die for. If you haven't been there you need to try it, his wines are soooo smooth.
