Very ripe herbal tones, integrated oak, cocao, vanilla, lots of good wood notes makes this quite spicy if a touch hot. Fresh fruit is in there, slightly macerated and sweet smelling with a hint of amaretto lurking. Big acid right up front then a fairly plush and well integrated mid-palate with herbal and citrus notes adding complexity to the rather rich red cherry fruits with a slightly exotic wild edge to them. Noticeable but not offensive wood offers a clean brisk finish with woody tannins lingering. I think this would be better with less wood but it is very nice. In a particularly rich, smooth style. 89pts

Stolpman 05 Sangiovese - 91 points

Producer notes: "While Stolpman is best known for its achievements in the Rhône varietals, we have taken a great interest in Sangiovese. Working side by side with Tuscan enological consultant Alberto Antonini, we have sought to create a new world Sangiovese that still maintains the structure and texture of the great wines from Montalcino and Montepulciano. We chose to keep the 2005 Sangiovese in barrel for just over two years, which allows the wine to develop unique character found in few wines around the world. Bright red fruit and fresh acidity give the 2005 Sangiovese lift and freshness on the palate -- a great example of what Sangiovese can do in California. Drink now through 2015. 735 cases produced."

91 Points - Steven Tanzer: Medium red. Dried cherry, redcurrant and rose aromas are complemented by musky herbs and anise. Sappy red and dark berry flavors are framed by silky tannins and pick up a note of bitter cherry skin with air. Turns brighter on the finish, with the redcurrant and floral notes repeating. Very successful for a New World sangiovese.
