A bit sweet on the nose with jammy red fruits, hints of vanilla and toasty spice all topped with some leathery accents and hints of black currants. Bright at first and starting out a bit on the light side, this almost explodes on the plate revealing a delicious core of red berry cherry and strawberry tinged fruit flecked with briary spice, judicious hints of toasty and milky oak and an herbaceous top note. This is moderately tannic in a bit of a rustic way, and while a bit of a throwback wine it really packs in a ton of flavor and fun. A bit of raspberry fades quickly on the modest finish, leaving behind a suggestion of sweetness and some nutty, marzipan like notes on the finale along with a little echo of cherry fruit. Buy a case and break out a bottle when you light the grill! 87pts

  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Wine is not all cut and dried. Sometimes a wine strikes you in a way that is not terribly easy to capture in a simple string of adjectives, which also would get more than it's share of complaints. there's no winning here, and if you don't find wines sometimes evocative, than I fear you're missing out.
