Sipping Fine Wine

Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest & most distinguished wine producers, lived in Tuscany since the 14th century. One of the first "Super Tuscans," blend of 85% Sangiovese, 10% Cab Sauv & 5% Cab Franc. Deep Ruby with aromas of black berry fruit aromas with dried herbs and sweet spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and cherry with cacao, tar, mushroom, vanilla and spice. Fine graceful tannins, long finish, well balanced, savory ending with oaky and earthy mineral tones. Very Nice!

Visually, bricking has begun. The nose presented a hint of musty cardboard, at that point, my sphincter started twitching - had I left this too long?
Palate displays spice notes initially, followed by anise, cinnamon and cloves. Mature cherries are also in the foreground with moderate tannins. Finishes with leather, olives notes and moderate sweetness. This is perched on a plateau, and should be consumed now.
The story behind the label is a broken bottle of a 2003 Leoville Las Cases, which pissed it’s pants (so to speak) in my eurocave, back in the day...

Initially backwards and sharp-edged after 90 mins and a warmup from cellar temp this was singing. Classic Sangiovese, sour cherry and dark chocolate. Asphalt. Elegant and feminine. The 15% Cabernets were nowhere to be seen, almost disappeared tannins suggest this should be drunk up soon, which is hardly punishment...

Not as epic as the ‘01 a few weeks ago but powerful dark cherry and wonderfully balanced, tannic and pure. Will improve.

A bit disappointing. Green edges and significantly oxidized. Not a terrific bottle?

I always love this wine. I've been fortunate to have a few different vintages ('97, '98, '04) and have been thrilled with each experience. The late '90s bottles were in great shape but felt that they were on the backend of their prime. This '04 is just getting started. Powerful but not overbearing. Red fruit dominant with black cherry mixed in. Can't tell if it's the oak that is giving off a semi sweet smell or a mint note from the wine itself, but I'm not hating it either way. Great structure on this always reliable well made wine.
