I got into wine about 50 years ago. Started with French wines and in the mid-seventies got into California wine. And now I am a fan of almost every popular wine region.

    Popped and poured. Wine had a sour taste. Then decanted for about 45 minutes and the wine took on a different dimension. Earthy and complex with a very faint hint of sweetness in the background. Very nice medium finish. Turned out to be one of the better Super Tuscans that I have tasted.

    Beautiful deep purple. A good amount of cherry on the nose and a faint hint of vanilla. On the palate the cherry dominates along with some dark plum with a hint of vanilla way in the background. The tannins are on the soft side with a medium finish. A very nice merlot from Italy. I rate this at around 88.

    Lots of life left in this wine. Great color. Mixed berries and cherry on the nose,but very subtle or fading. On the palate nothing explosive, just steady flavors of cherry and a hint of vanilla. The finish is medium. Tannins were evident but on the soft side. Enjoyable wine.

    This wine is 50% Sangiovese and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is drinking well now. No need to lay down. The combination of these two grapes is amazing. I guess we call this a Super Tuscan. this could be my go to wine during the week.

    This Cabernet is in its prime. The tannins have slightly withdrawn. Everything you want a great cab to be is definitely in this vintage. The finish is medium.

    Had this 10 year old wine and was surprised how fresh and lively it was. Beautiful color and on the nose loads of cherry and red berries. On the palate the cherry and berry flavors dominated along with medium tannins. The finish was medium plus. I thought I was drinking a much younger wine. A wonderful wine.

    A joy to drink. Very Fresh with balanced fruit with light to medium tannins. Brilliant color. A finish that was medium.

    So fresh and elegant. Gorgeous red color. Not much sediment. Not much on the nose. Upon tasting I picked up dark fruits in the background. Tannins were still there but light to medium. The finish was medium. The freshness of this 11 year old wine was remarkable.

    Soft, Elegant with a hint of fruit to make it interesting. A perfect match for Chicken Picatta.
