A decisive bouquet of vanilla, cherry, raspberry, and licorice. The aromas are full, yet elegant. Dry, warm, and soft on the palate. This is a very full wine with serious structure. With proper storage, this wine will reward extensive cellaring of more than two decades. Decant before serving alongside hearty dishes, including roasts, grilled red meats, and wild game.

This ripe red is hallmarked by flavors of cherry, iron and tobacco, with elements of plum and eucalyptus. Strikes a balance between fruity and savory, with a lingering finish of dusty tannins. Best from 2024 through 2038. 2,800 cases made, 1,200 cases imported.

Aromas of ripe dark-skinned fruit, leather and licorice shape the nose on this big, round red. The licorice aroma carries over to the chewy, accessible palate along with steeped prune and polished, enveloping tannins. Drink through 2027.

The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino displays wild strawberries, savory herbs and hints of flowery undergrowth. Its deep, generous textures usher in red and black berry fruits and savory spices, and it gains grip through a saturation of tannins that form toward the close. It finishes long and structured, and also a bit chewy, leaving nuances of licorice and rose. This is a good attempt for the vintage, though it's a bit clenching through the finale.
