    “Aromas of licorice and dark berries with hints of spices and cherries. Full body, tight and mildly chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold. Better in 2020.”

    “Underbrush, violet, aromatic herb and wild berry aromas appear at the forefront. The light-bodied palate is less expressive, showing dried blackberry and clove alongside dusty tannins.”

    “A layered and ripe red with plum and chocolate character. Medium body, soft and velvety tannins and a delicious finish. Just right now.”

    “A blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Mammolo, this offers classic varietal scents of underbrush, wild berry, blue flower, and a whiff of leather. The firm palate delivers dried black cherry, raspberry, white pepper, and anise framed in tightly packed but mature tannins. Drink through 2020.” - Kerin O’Keefe
