Ripe vintage. Powerful wine with tons of tannin still.

Brunello masquerading as Cab? Maybe atypical but hard to deny how delicious this wine is.

Nice to celebrate with a good friends wine! This wine still has lots of fruit and fine silky tannins.

Big wine, but layers of flavor. Good with burgers.

Barn yard funk. Bread. Still young. Drank next to ‘04 and seemed like different wines.

Text book Brunello at a peak. Smooth dusty cherry on a structured backbone. No evidence of the hot vintage. Just a lovely bottle. years to go.

Double recanted several hours before tasting but definitely needed a little more time to develop. Intense tannins lots of cherries
