Herbs and sweet spices on the nose, tertiary aromas on the palate, with good tannins and acidity to leave it kicking.
Nice mouthfeel.

Monthly WTF wine night with a theme of ‚Äúsomething to impress‚ÄĚ. As always, wines were tasted blind.

This was so young, but it was great to get a feel for where this is going...could be stellar in 5-7yrs. Cardamom, black tea, Dusty and underripe raspberries on the nose. High acid, black cherries, tar and rose petals round out the palate. Needs lots of time. I called this Cabernet Franc from right bank.

This was so much further along than the Biondi santi and was a very impressive showing. Already developing deeper notes and just felt more complete. Would immediately recommend and buy again!
