Solid intensity of classic dark cherry, prune, tobacco, leather, moist earth, damp tea leaves and smoky oak and a touch of camphor. Very smooth entry, a touch soft in acidity which is subsumed in the slightly chewy, dark fruits but pops on the mid-palate. The tannins are crisp and subtle offering good support until they break through the fruit on the backend with bright sour red berry fruit and a touch of cocoa. Dark and earthy with a touch of cedar cigar box and nice silica rich earth notes on the long, very savory, cocoa tinged slightly hot finish with a lovely bitter almond finale. This is fairly resolved and will benefit from another year or 3 in the cellar but will not make old bones. Drink 2010-2018 93pts

A bold matriarch with expensive hair and dark lipstick, some may get a rise out of her. Most of the time I'm not in the mood for her shenanigans and mind games, but right now I'm getting a second glass.

A very mature wine. Warm, smooth and silky with well crafted tannins, subtle tar and oak, and just the right amount of acidity. Black cherries, tobacco, a tiny bit of medicine on the finish. Wonderful sun baked fruit on this one -- I can imagine that Tuscan warmth as I drink it, and I really want to have a bit of pasta right now.

Delicate wolley and gamey nose which I immediately associate with high priced wines. Very delicate flavor but extremely well balanced and delicious. I love it but I wouldn't want to settle down with it.

Great stucture licorice, saddle leather, high acidity. Needs more time but very good.

Good acidity and earth on the nose. Leather and cherries, with a truffle finish. Still tart from the tannins which will open up some more, but the fruit is aging well.
