Added Aug 7, 2013 at 10:00amA pale straw yellow color. Clean, crisp fragrance with intense yet elegant hints of quince, green apples, and refreshing citrus fruits. The palette has fresh, harmonious fruit set off by slight sweetness with a long finish full of delicate, tangy flavor.

Added May 23, 2013 at 5:47pmRipe plum, black fruit, combined with herbal and smoky notes that give it depth. The palate has lots of cassis and tar, finishing with dry tannins. Drinking nicely now.

Added May 16, 2013 at 11:01pmDark purple in the glass. Strong nose with notes of plum and currents. In the mouth, the wine has a bit of acidity with cherries, plum, and a hint of vanilla. The finish is a bit dry and lightly tannic. Nice long finish.

Added May 3, 2013 at 9:58amWonderful blend of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, this powerful wine has a strong nose and would benefit from decanting and sitting a while before being consumed. On the nose is an oaky vanilla with notes of blueberry, plum, black and dark fruit. In the mouth it is meaty and peppery with hints leather, tar, and tobacco. Aggressive, chewy tannins.

Bere Toscana 2009
Added Nov 13, 2012 at 9:43pmLight on the nose with notes of red current and a bit of tar. Smooth on the palate with a medium body, but not very provocative or memorable. Thin, short finish.

Added Apr 27, 2013 at 10:56amI found this to be a very lively quaff with lots of acid and note of red cherry and raspberry. It drinks very much like a zippy pinot noir. Not a whole lot of balance, however.

Added Apr 13, 2013 at 5:11pmWonderful mixture of Tempranillo plum and cherry fruit with gentle, but classic, Rioja oak accents. The aromas and flavors are very nice, sitting atop a texture and structure that makes those flavors sing. It’s luxurious, round, and velvety in your mouth, all without any hint of heaviness. The tannins and acids are more than soft enough for sipping, but have just the right power to pair wonderfully with food.

Added Apr 3, 2013 at 9:38pmRed-currants and purple plum are supported by notes of vanilla and a hint of spice, all balanced with a nice acidity that keeps the wine fresh on the palate.
