Licorice, dark fruits and tobacco. Structured w firm tannins -- this can definitely use decanting --- improved considerably w time in the glass. Had it with pasta, but think meat would be a better match for the tannins. Could also probably use more time in the bottle.

Medium bodied Sangiovese. Earthy notes up front with more spiced cherry finish

Dried cranberry and cherry with pomegranate on the nose. Tart versions of them on the palate. Some balsamic and strawberries up in the mix. Very present tannins, seemingly med+ acid.

Nice and dry. Light to medium bodied. Makes mouth water (I believe due to acidity). Good table wine. Primarily Sangiovese.

#garyveewineclub licorice, cherries, and some dark fruits with firm tannins and lingering acidity. Quite fruit-forward on the palate. The oak is unbalanced, but pairs very well with meaty tomato sauce pastas.

Day 2: Garnet with shades of orange. Subtle nose of dried blackcherry, rose petal, and clove. Dark cherry and blackberry fruit. Vibrant and bold. Solid finish. Sangiovese, Merlot, Caniolo. #garyveewineclub
