Curiously sangio nose of violet, earth, and almond at first with solid plummy fruit that turns more cabernet based with airing offering up ripe cassis notes and gently leafy herbs. Big and rich with lovely balance reamining fresh as each layer of flavor reveals itself. An unusual blend that is a success, lovely tannin and good acidity keeps this interesting and food friendly

Though the Sangiovese makes up less than 1/4 the blend, it was very prominent. Currant, spice, smokey, fine tannins; developed some vanilla toward the end. Needs at 2-4 hours in the decanter. (****)

Had the deck stacked against it; tasted with a 03 metisse. But I have seen a decline in my lot of 95s. This is my 4 or 5th. Fruit less and less with each. This wine was DOA. Dumped it. None of the typical Bacio qualities. No fruit, all wet earth. Not was I was looking for. I've been meaning to drink these, but now I might just hold on it for 5-10 years and see it the cab improves at all. But doubt it.

[Cafe Loup] Tasted a little flat at first. But was great with food. Strawberry, licorice, anise, vanilla; very nice

Winemaker's Notes:

64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Sangiovese, 14% Petit Sirah Our primary Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are in the Rutherford appellation. The Sangiovese comes from a high elevation vineyard in Atlas Peak (harvested in November), and our Petit Sirah vineyard is located just north of Calistoga. All fruit and wines are Napa appellation The wine is deeply Cabernet colored, complex and layered in blackberry and current fruit. The intriguing Sangiovese varietal adds linear tannins and an indigenous fruitiness. The Petit Sirah adds a firm structural backbone and a fresh, bright acidity to the wine. Overall, Bacio Divino is balanced, precocious in its youth, generous in flavor and aroma, yet retains an elegance not always found in California wines.
