Insanely delicious for $35 tastes like a much more expensive wine, very well structured and a long ride from start to finish, it's barolo like at the end where some chocolate, toboacco and minerally things show up. A luscious ripe fruit nose, the long middle is very fruity

Gaja's 2005 Promis (55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese) is a plump, juicy wine bursting with ripe dark fruit, leather and spices. This fresh, engaging wine is best enjoyed over the next two to three years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.

Still primary in its fruit character, this merlot-based blend (55 percent) from Montalcino has bright, juicy cherry flavors and light, chocolatey tannins. It may develop more complexity with age, or enjoy it now with prime rib.

Thick and ripe yet still big and tannic with huge plum, black cherry, earth, tobacco and chocolate. Definitely not for people with a palate for mild, easy wines. This "in your face" red is for those of us who like to use a knife and fork to drink a bottle of wine.

The 2004 Promis, a blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah and 10% Sangiovese, opens with pretty aromatics followed by plenty of plump sweet dark fruit, earthiness and black pepper notes. Medium in body, it displays excellent length on the palate as well as a fine, fresh finish. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2014.

Aromas of plum and meat follow through to a full-bodied palate, with soft tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best after 2009.

Magari Gaja Ca Marcanda Tuscany Gaja's Bordeaux blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cab Franc and 25% Merlot. A hit from its first release, it remains an uncontested success among lovers of rich, expressive Super-Tuscan Cabernet blends. Antonio Galloni's 91 Point review reads as follows: A rich, ripe wine offering notable concentration in a sweet red fruits style. The 2004 is stylish and highly enjoyable.

<p>Magari is the second wine offered by the Gaja Winery's Ca'Marcanda estate. This red can stand up to strong flavors like prime rib or duck.</p>
