This wine is dark red and spiced. It brings to mind fresh strawberries and raspberries, but with a mysterious tone. Green herbs, tobacco, and baking spices are intertwined with white peppercorn, vanilla bean and blackberry. The wine grips your palate with fresh red berries and balsamic reduction, a touch of mint, dark chocolate and campfire. It finishes warm and lifted, pushing more red fruits and vinous sweet tannin.

This wine is dark and inviting. It bears the interplay of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah very well, showing black fruits, blueberry, green herbs, and charcoal. The palate is very finely textured and expands nicely from sweet dark berries to broad red plum, blueberry jam, vanilla and baking spices. This wine is very satisfying and despite its youth, opens quickly to provide immediate pleasure. It will also benefit from a decant, or a couple years in the cellar.
This wine is inky and alluring. The glass brims with dark bramble fruits and exotic spices. There is a rich undertone of umami and chocolate, balanced by a bright and lifted black raspberry and balsamic reduction. The palate layers in dark plum, dried fig, cocoa powder, black cherry and allspice. Overall, this wine is deep and mysterious, requiring a moment of thought and appreciation for things of density and character. Built on tannic structure, this wine will benefit from cellaring, and will need air and time to show fully.
This is a barrel selection of many varietals, all aimed at producing a very finely textured and fruit forward blend. At the heart of this blend is Sangiovese and Grenache, with splashes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah for darkness and substance.
The Cabernet and Sangiovese really shine through in the aromatics of this wine. It shows off dark cherry liquor, red currant, cassis, dried strawberry and a touch of vanilla. On the palate the wine is very soft and sweet, full of red fruits, a touch of blackberry jam and baking spices. It finishes with red plum, strawberry and vanilla bean.
