    The nose was ripe, yet characterful, showing dark fruit, ripe strawberry, mint, and a hint of oak. On the palate, it was rich and deeply rooted in brambly, earthy fruit with blackberry, currant, hints of stem and minerals. The texture was full yet grainy with tannin that tugged at your already black-fruit saturated palate. A solid vein of acidity kept it fresh enough for the dinner table, yet fun enough for the back porch. The finish was tart, with a slightly syrupy, lip-smacking quality--yet fresh. An excellent bottle of wine and a great value. (90 points)

    The nose showed rich dark berry, blueberry skins, brown sugar, vanilla and a whiff of gravel dust and hints of barnyard. On the palate, it was feminine and elegant with an unexpected weightless sensation complimented by focused ripe fruits and hints of holiday spice. Very young but impeccably balanced. It finished fresh but with berry extract saturating the senses. (92 points)

    The nose showed intense red berry, ginger, hints minerals, dark earth and woodland tones. On the palate, it was silky smooth with balanced acidity, ripe dark fruits and herbs accentuated by a hint of heat. The palate staining finish lasted long with blackberry and spice. Again, the alcohol peaks out a bit on the finish yet it’s not dramatic, resulting in a rich and provocative wine. (89 points)

    The nose showed tremendous depth with black cherry, wild herbs, hints of brown sugar, sweet floral tones and minerals, making it intense yet fresh all at once. On the palate, it was rich with dark fruit caressing the senses, showing black cherry and spiced holiday breads, (not sweet but dark and spicy with hints of molasses). The finish followed suit as rich fruit tones slowly melted away to reveal a fresh, clean finale. (93 points)

    The nose was fresh yet rich with seaside air, citrus, green olive and herbal tones. On the palate, ripe green apple with a citrus twinge kept it fresh and lively against medium-weight, almost oily textures. The finish was crisp with brisk acidity and lime lingering on the palate. (88 points)

    The nose showed spicy cherry, milk chocolate and blueberry with a vanilla sheen. On the palate, it was medium in body with ripe dark berry tones, sweet spice, dark chocolate and hints of herbs. The finish showed masses of ripe fruit and spice but with a beautifully refreshing quality. (87 points)

    The nose showed spicy red and blue fruit, herbal tea, cedar and wood tones, cinnamon and a hint of cherry tobacco. On the palate, it was as smooth as silk with weighty textures. Dark fruits, spiced cookie, brown sugar and medicinal cherry were made fresh by its streamlined acidity. The finish was lasting yet pleasantly fresh and fruity. (89 points)

    The nose was classic Monsanto Chianti, showing ripe strawberry, with hints of plum, barnyard, animal musk and a whiff chalky mineral. On the palate, it was silky with great balanced acidity lending juicy tones as concentrated red fruits and dried spices seduced the senses. The finish showed hints of refined tannin with tart fruit lingering through the close. As usual, this wine performs much better after an hour or two in decanter, lending a much better showing than any note I've taken at formal tastings. (91 points)

    The nose showed strawberry, floral stems, mint and dried cinnamon. On the palate, it was youthfully lean yet balanced, showing red berries and inner floral notes that lasted through the finish. The 2009 may need more time before it blossoms, and I’ll be happy to put some away to wait and see.

    The nose was thrilling with crushed strawberry, fall leaves, wild herbs and hints of animal musk. On the palate, it was medium-bodied with lush fruit and silky textures contrasting it's broad structure. Flavors of red berry, orange zest, hints of cedar and herbal tea filled the senses. The finish turned dry, yet saturating fruits lingered through the close. This is drinking now with a good decant but should get even better over the next ten to fifteen years. (91 points)

    Showing inky, dark purple with red hues. The nose was highly expressive with fruity, spicy notes, showing a mix of blueberry and cherry, cinnamon, and hints of coffee grinds, violets and minerals adding depth. It caressed the palate with soft textures, balanced acidity and flavors of ripe blackberry, a dusting of dark chocolate and spice. Sweet wild berries were met by a mouth-watering, bitter streak on the finish.
