"The 2012 Chianti Classico is superb. Bright red-toned fruit, spices, anise and leather grace the palate in an absolutely exquisite, vibrant wine endowed with superb texture, finesse and personality...It is super refined and a real standout for the year. Dollops of Canaiolo and Colorino round out the blend."
"Ruby red with violet red highlights. Intense, persistent, fruity, notes of dry flowers, spices and liquorice. Full body, ready to drink or can be aged 5/8 years."
"A deep cherry red with spicy notes of a Mediterranean forest, thyme and lavender and complex notes of cedar and tobacco.sweet, soft, enveloping long aftertaste memories of vanillas and spices"
"The final wine is a Merlot, blended with Syrah and Malbec. Aromas of savory spice, black cherry, and mocha with cedar and blackberry. The entry delivers an elegant balance with flavors of black plum and anise, along with hints of grilled rosemary and toasted oak. Velvety, chocolate tannins develop into a robust finish."
"The blend of Syrah from Vinsobres with Syrah from Villafranchian terraces in Gard always produces wonderful balance, fleshiness and finesse. You may get to know the 2015 vintage through this wine – the oxblood colour, the depth, sappy character and wonderful round tannins for instance. You can easily sense the intensity with which fruit was imbued in 2015, a truly superb vintage. Notes of Blackcurrant, camphor, truffle, rose and blueberry."
"The wine has serious tannins and firm fruit that give an austere character at this stage. But it will develop and round out into a rich wine with ripe black fruits, always with a solid tannic structure.

"A magnificent Dry Creek Zinfandel made from dry farmed head pruned vines of over 100 years old. These sacred vines are a living testament to the unique combination of this old clone from Croatia grafted to St. George rootstock. This robust Zin is deep in color, hearty and full bodied with mixed rich flavors of berry and spice. Aged 20 months in American Oak from MN. A delicious wine to serve with Italian style cuisine, lamb, and braised meats."
