This has a lovely, complex, highly scented nose of cedar, spice, some vanillin, wood smoke and candied cassis fruit....

It's only wine but I like it

What fine Cabernet this is! Superior complexity with nice ripeness, well-integrated oak and a long finish. The hints of sour cherries and the welcome acidity and hints of tartness remind me of sangiovese....or maybe that is just the character of Tuscany. Drinking nicely no, but not rush, this should hold for a few more years. Excellent and easily worth $28, Tasted Oct 2017.

Nice purple colour, starting to amber at the rim. Lovely, very Italian nose of dried flowers, herbs and forresty notes. Reveals itself on the palate a c-s with cassis fruit and good tannic structure. Med-bodied, with a long spicy finish. Very enjoyable, and I suspect it will continue to evolve. Fine of expression of c-s in the Italian idiom.

Structured, ripe and complex. A good tuscan cab. Cassis, graphite, dark fruit and peppercorn with Nearly enough (in my opinion) Of That tuscan savory character we all know and love. Not life changing year goal easy find for a last second buy.
