Rich, opulent and fleshy, but a bit bitter and heavy on the oak. 2009 was a warm, late ripening vintage in Tuscany, so it makes sense in the glass. Not a 30-year wine, bit a great bottle for right now.

Sitting on the soft, grassy hillside of a beautiful Tuscan Villa, looking out over the peaceful rolling hills, bathed in sunshine. As you take in this magestic pastoral scene, a stranger appears.... he's wearing a baseball cap and listening to an iPod.... Must be an American. But, strangely.... This adds to the experience.

Now this is nice. Merlot based Super Tuscan is ripe with fruit, great structure, integrated tannins, and smooth finish. Yum.
