Firm, slightly candied black cherry fruit greets the nose followed by liquory strawberry fruit, strawberry seeds, damp cigar and low herbal notes, with hints of cocoa, nutmeg and crystallized flowers. Very polished in the mouth, this starts out with some graham cracker and marshmallow notes that lead to a mid-palate full of wild strawberry and cherry fruit. The oak spice recedes but doesn’t fully disappear and adds some nice detail. The palate doesn’t quite live up to the expectations set by the nose, but the finish shows that this remains quite youthful and well balanced, with a bed of low but firm tannins that need to resolve a bit more for this to show all it has got. Already, it is quite perfumed and really silkily textured. 90pts

Purchased this from Wine Garage in Calistoga, CA.... Earthy, slightly toasty nose, deep red wild strawberry fruit notes... lighter tannins, a warm spice...almost slight cinnamon tempered with ginger. The big strawberry fruit stays through the taste. There is some oak here as well, hence that nose. I personally like this wine, but some Italian purists may not.
