Happy New Year everyone! Here is a beautiful Italian Bordeaux blend. Very dark ruby in color with a wide reddish /brick rim. Great nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, chocolates, wet leaves, leather, mushrooms, eucalyptus, peppercorn, vegetables, green pepper, tobacco leaf and spices. Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs. Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke, earth, light vegetables and black pepper. Long finish with fine grained tannins and cherries. This is a great Italian, Cabernet Based, Super Tuscan. Nicely balanced with great complexity. A little hot at the back of the throat still, which will probably go away in the next 5 years. This 16 year old has a beautiful nose that you can smell on for hours (which I did). Reminds me of a nicely aged Left Bank Bordeaux. We let it open up for 4 hours. Tannins come in only after 4 hours, so be patient. Will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years. A great quality wine. Thank you Scott for sharing this with me. Robert Parker 93 points. I paired it with cheeses and crackers. Was great with the triple cream truffle Brie cheese. Delightful and elegant. Tasty and delicious. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Aged for 18 months in (70% new) French oak barrels. 14.5% alcohol by volume. 96 points. $200.

Выпито с Четой Гитлиных 14.08.20 по прилету в Maxx Royal. Прекрасный бордоский бленд 2003 года. Нежный насыщенный. Прекрасно раскрылось после 30 минут в декантере.

Inky ruby purple color with strong of black fruits, tobacco, and sweet herbs on the palate. Full-bodied together with gorgeous flavors of ripe plum, blackberry, dark chocolate, almond, and soft black pepper on the palate. Solid structure, chewy & smooth tannins, medium acidity, and savory mouthfeel & lively long aftertaste on the finish. Very very delicious & clearly my most favorite Italian wine so far.

Great memories of an '04 Ornellaia. Yes, I knew the '04 Ornellaia and this, sir, is not the '04 Ornellaia! Still...a beguiling nose of cherry and wet tobacco, beautifully knit over the palate, more spicy and rougher tannins on the back end than normal. Very good but not great.

One dimensional fruit cola opens up to something more interesting with time. Suggest you hold in your cellar for a few more years

@Bruce Leboff we saved you a glass. But hurry it won't be around too long. :) warm vintage adds a little heat to this Bordeaux influenced Tuscan wine. Well balanced.

Gorgeous Cabernet blend nose but very ripe and sweet reflecting the hot European vintage of 2003. Right to drink it now. Cassis and currant notes on palate. Very Bordeaux like. Good wine but lacks nuance.
