Nicely fruity on the nose with early notes of mulberry, black fruits and violet over some limestone notes. Rich, ripe yet transparent on the palate with lively, crisp tannins and an edge of austerity that underpins the mulberry, black raspberry and juniper/forest floor-toned palate. This finishes much more in the red fruit end of the spectrum with currant and cherry fruit lingering over a succulent, sandy soil driven base. Archetypal Chianti. 89pts

Aged in third passage barrique This has a wonderful purity to the sweet, slightly candied notes of barely ripe crushed raspberries with hints of medicinal roots, flowers and bay leaves adding contrast. In the mouth this exhibits a light to medium bodied feel and is very fruit driven with a core of black currant and raspberry fruit that exhibits excellent cut and focus. There are hints of underbrush and herbs on the palate that show up on the big, pure finish with fruit that’s just a touch chunky and an almost spicy note of green anise seeds on the finale. A lovely wine, full and fresh. 90pts

There’s something a touch funky on the nose here with a very smoky and minerally profile that recalls bacon fat and ashes but there’s also plenty of sweet fruit and even a hint of apricot glaze. In the mouth this is elegant and very refined with big, black cherry fruit that’s tight and wound up. There are lovely, nuanced notes of sandalwood, dried citrus rinds and herbs in the mouth but the tannins really clamp down on the finish. Nonetheless the core of fruit is just so pretty, faceted, and ripe that this is certain to benefit from several years aging. 94pts

Aged for 2 years in barrique, 75% new, followed by 2 years in bottle Slightly jammy on the nose, but exhibiting a chalky dryness as well with notes of roast meat and dried medicinal roots. With air this gains some focus with a touch of celery and hints of rosewood and quinine. The fruit remains pretty jammy and black with refreshing notes of mint and minerals offering some relief from the darkness. In the mouth this is rich and chewy with solid acids and a fairly tannic profile. It’s got plenty of fruit to buffer the tannins and gains a bit of a peppery tone from the wood that works well with the wine’s innate sweetness. The finish is moderately long with notes of burnished cherry and bitter melon rind that are highlighted by a touch of raspy mouthgrab. This is definitely a frontloaded wine and may reveal better length in time but is not among the finest I Sodis. 89pts

The nose here is a bit gentle with sweet roasted fruit and subtle soft spices. The palate follows through with a soft, feathery appeal that highlights the roasted strawberry and black plum fruits. The finish gains a touch of wood spice and soil tones but this remains remarkable elegant Pinot that more winemakers should be emulating. 92pts

which was very young with it unevolved nose of sweet, slightly smoky oak and sandy mineral tones. In the mouth this was lush and rich with great mineral cut and rigid, slightly rustic tannins that were bracing anf lingered on the licorice tinged finish. Far to young but promising indeed.

Cut red plums, smoke, hickory from the oak, a little flint, steel, apple core, lovely sweet violet note. Bright, fairly tense. I prefer the ‘97 to this. Tight and a bit oaky today. A bit chewy, lightly, full of bitter cherry fruit, classic austere, aggressive stuff. This is charged with fruit. Ready to beat your mouth into submission, but has fine fresh, ripe fruit. There is a lingering black cherry pit note on the finale. 91pts

Nice strawberry fruit on the nose which is a contrast to its deep violet hue. Structured and complex, yet with a smooth mouthfeel, subtle tannins and bright acidity

Bright, tart fruit with a balanced acidity, woodsy flavors (pinecone, cedar), good weight and smoothness. Very well balanced.

Overpowering salinity/brine flavor, gets a little better after a half hour in the glass. Light body. Tangy and fruity on the palette followed by an array of interesting tart flavors. Fine tannins. The salinity kills it for me, but lots of people seem to like that.

Since 1994 I have been drinking the Cinq Cepages and found this to be my all time favorite blend. Plenty of body, great nose and extremely tasty. I haven't opened my 07 yet but it's sure to be as good as all of the others.

The combination of barrel and tank fermentation for this wine has resulted in bright, forward aromatics with beautifully balanced fruit and oak. The texture is soft, with round oak tannins and well-integrated acidity. The layers of melon, pear and pineapple are enhanced by rich toasty oak that leads to a long finish.

The concentrated blueberry, black plum and cassis notes are supported by fresh acidity, with layers of wildflower, pepper and mineral expanding on the finish. Drink now.

Twenty Bench is a wine of great personality, with aromas of fresh red-fruits and blackcurrant scents dominating the nose. It is quick to express itself on the palate with harmonious flavors of cassis, blackberry, cigar box, dark chocolate and vanilla spice.

Dusty dark-fruit aromas are lusty and full of oaky notes including sawdust and chocolate. This value-priced winner is full, round, saturated and generous on the palate, where savory, resiny black-fruit flavors finish woody in flavor and firm in feel.

This is a ripe full-bodied wine with rich apricot flavor accented with bright acidity and notes of ginger. A finely balanced wine that finishes on a lovely green-plum note. Wine Enthusiast.

Twisted 2012 Old Vine Zinfandel is medium-bodied with aromas of black cherry, red currant, blackberry bramble and a hint of spice. Concentrated ripe fruit, dark berry flavors and black pepper carry through to the palate while nicely balanced acidity and plush tannins lead to a lingering finish. Enjoy Twisted Old Vine Zinfandel with braised short ribs, BBQ chicken pizza or pulled pork sliders. - WineryAlcohol: 13.5%Total Acidity: 0.62 grams/100mlpH: 3.56

A juicy, fleshy palate is supported by ripe cherry and blackberry fruit. This is delicately built with fine, lingering tannins - wrapped up in integrated, well seasoned oak. A wine that is ready for immediate enjoyment with a view to cellaring for 7 to 10 years from vintage -Winery

Winemaker's Notes:

Helles Kirschenrot, intensive Aromen von roten Früchten, frisch und süss.

<p>Made from a blend of Sangioveto, Canaiolo and other complementary grapes, this very dry Tuscan Chianti is brilliant ruby red with an ample bouquet of violets, iris and vanilla followed by layers of fruit on the palate.</p>
