Dark scarlet, opaque. Great nose. Notes of black cherries, plums, an old oak desk, some mocha and a hint of menthol. Silky in the mouth. Sappy fruit. Nice performance tonight.

Dark scarlet ruby. Almost opaque. Nice perfume with notes of blackberries, rose petals, hickory and a little menthol. Very big in the mouth. Lots of fruit with plenty of structure to match. Very nice.

A lot of new oak on this monster Sangiovese. Tastes like a Napa Cult Cab to me.

Brunello that is right in that prime spot of secondary development and residual fruit. This continued to develop over several hours. Really interesting.

Not a wine I would buy but interesting to try. Deep, inky black in the glass. A bit secondary on the nose but overall for the age in a great place. Very ebulliently fruity and robust, would not have guessed brunello though I do understand 2001 was an intense year. Nice acid and a long finish. Surprisingly good with ribs.
