Ceuso 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

A dark red wine with deep blueberry fruit and the typical Nero d’Avola savory undertones. Smoke green herbs and chocolate... yum. This wine has considerable structure and will need some years to hit its peak but the owner will be well rewarded.

External Reviews for Ceuso

Vintage: 2004 01/10/2013

The estateandrsquo;s 2004 Ceuso, 50% Nero dandrsquo;Avola, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, spent 12 months in French oak followed by six months in cement prior to being bottled. A compelling array of smoke, cassis, spices, mint, coffee beans, dark cherries and sweet toasted oak flow from its generous, structured frame. This elegant, expansive wine needs another year or two in bottle to come together, but it is a sumptuous red that is sure to deliver much pleasure. Anticipated maturity: 2009andndash;2019.

This ripe, sun-drenched blend of Nero dandrsquo;Avola, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon delivers generous tones of leather, tobacco, licorice, cassis berry, dried hay and spice. It has thick, dark concentration and a long finish.

Herersquo;s a toasty and earthy wine that is given more dimension thanks to lush notes of vanilla, blackberry, leather and pipe tobacco. The finish rides over spicy notes and the tannins are tight and dusty.

This wonderful Italian red is a blend of Nero drsquo;Avola, Cabernet and Merlot. The Nero drsquo;Avola gives this medium-bodied wine its strength, while finesse and structure come from the Merlot and Cabernet. Big, layered flavors of blackberry and plum bring a smoothness to the delicious notes of spice box. Great for roasted red meat or your favorite hearty mushroom dish.

Lots of ripe damson plum, oak, and earthy, slightly ferrous minerals on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and lots of flavor. Long finish. Shows promise. Nero drsquo;Avola, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot. Best after 2007.

Vintage: 2004 01/03/2012

Deep red with a garnet rim. Roasted plum, brown spices, coffee and dark chocolate on the nose, plus a whiff of cabernet-derived bell pepper. Juicy and intense, exhibiting a strong minerality and a lightness of touch to its pretty cassis, black pepper and inky flavors. Finishes smooth and very long.
