Really big up front, but settles in nicely to a more elegant mid-palate and finish. The tannin in the finish is a little grainy. Blackberry, blueberries, plum, a little mint, and dollops of creme are picked up in this legendary site's 2009 Carlisle version.

Independence Day, a day where we officially broke rank, here's to the rebels and the old school with 130 year old vines of one of America's great vineyards with a grape we have made all our own (and a splash of some other old school grape varietals). Deep red in color with electric ruby edges. The nose is full, not over blown, as is the palate if maybe a touch more heat coming through there. Screaming currants, with graphite, raspberry and blackberry. Lots of fun, tasty with the grilled ribs! #monterosso
