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

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.

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.

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.

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.
