A blend of 65% Cab Sauv, 20% Cab Franc & 15% Merlot, note more CF and no Petit V as in prior years. Deep Ruby with aromas of black and red fruits and sweet vanilla cedar aromas. On the palate black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors with vanilla, tobacco and oak spice. Smooth and refined tannins, long ending with sweet earthy tones. Wow!! Need to decant! — 15 days ago
My wine tonight is the 2017 Gaja Ca'Marcanda Magari. This is from the Bolgheri region of Italy. This is a blend of 60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot.
The nose has notes of sweet strawberry, cherry, raspberry, spice, mint, menthol, brambles and crushed gravel.
On the palate there is cherry, raspberry, sweet strawberry, green bell pepper, cassis, black currant, herbs cedar, chalkiness and crushed gravel.
This wine is medium to full bodied that is velvety and a medium + acidity and medium + to high grainy fine round tannins that move seamlessly to a long red fruit dry earthy finish. This weekend looks to be a beautiful weekend so lets enjoy what we have today and enjoy one another. Please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — a month ago

For some reason, it just didn’t hit as I expected. From the nose to the finish, less powerful than expected. Excited to try it again — a month ago
Very nice Super Tuscan. Slightly sweet and smooth, with cherry flavors and a long finish. Perfect with Italian food and very reasonably priced. — 13 days ago
Smooth tanins but fruit was a bit flat and seemed a bit past its prime. Improved somewhat over 2 hours. — 20 days ago

Bakers chocolate, cardamom, herbs de Provence, roses, suede, tobacco, coffe and black cherry. Red tart and black cherry power palate with brooding chocolate, rich raspberry and cherry reductions, crispy sage, light graphite, and finally tight plum and blackberry. .
