This needs 1-2 hours to open up. Once it does it's very good. Flavors of blueberry and a hint of spice. Somewhat tannic with a decent finish.

Loaded with tart berries tamed by the kind of acidity you never come across in new world wines, this is delicious. In California wines with this much fruit are inevitably cloying but here it's in a beautiful balance, and the overall impression is soft and lithe. The nose has wonderful licorice and raisins and blackberries. In the mouth there's a pleasant lingering green element, almost minty. Really nice mid -weeker. Will only get better, more integrated, with a few years in bottle.

PnP. Great nose & well-integrated palate of dark berries, cherry and baking spice, with mild current/raisin and light tannins on the medium finish. Amazing what a couple of years makes.

5/26/2015 - TannicBeast Likes this wine: 89 points

Ruby with some garnet hues, medium intensity. The nose is clean, medium in intensity, with aromas of black fruit, smoke and rubber. The palate is dry, with medium acidity, medium (+) resolved tannins and medium alcohol at 13%. Overall, this is a smooth, medium bodied, very well balanced red. It is produced in the Nizza area which has recently been promoted to DOCG status. Drinking well now, but should be fine for several more.

5/26/2015 - TannicBeast Likes this wine: 88 points

Purple with ruby hues, medium (+) in intensity. The nose is clean, medium in intensity, with red cherry and blackberry aromas. The palate is dry, with medium (+) acidity, tannins and alcohol (14%). This wine is crisp, fruity and youthful, with tart red fruit flavors and some minerality on the finish. It will benefit from another year of aging and should drink well through 2020. A very good value in the $14-$17 range.

Tasting note from second night. Stored 1/2 bottle in a 375 with Vacuvin. The wine stood up well. It was better last night but still a solid 89-90.

Super sexy wine. Not showing any aging in the color. Purple, with a hint of cigar, sweet spice, plowed earth and bing cherry. This bottle wasn't showing any age at all. It was juicy, succulent, without any gripping tannin and a long finish. Drink fantastic. Enjoy it.

PNP. Cork perfect. Color is dark garnet. Nose is dense w tar and dark dusty fruit. Swishing unloads huge structure w intense acid and even more dense tannin. Sipping though tames the beast, mostly because the fruit is so dense. Finish is balanced between fruit and structure and surprisingly mild given the inherent structure. I think that this is really very good and still very exuberant in its youth. Thanks for sharing mike!

Very fun to try a wine so different. You can taste the clay that it was made in. The wine changes and gets better as it is open to air. The crowd was not overly enthusiastic about this wine.

Beautiful expression of Sangiovese,dusty, sour cherry, great balance, it had real presence but was not big in any sense.

I really enjoyed it, but for $40+ enjoyment should be almost guaranteed.

Pronounced fragrant nose. Medium body. Restrained dark cherry, cola, and a touch of spice box. Still tannic and young. Needs time to bring out the secondary flavors.

Rich nose and palate. Nose is floral or like spring wild flowers. The palate start off almost like a white burgundy, with buttery honeysuckle and excellent viscosity. Some nuttiness on the finish. So good!

Wow this is very good, really dark and brooding. Dark fruits, smoky, tannins still apparent. Gracefully receding into secondary notes right now with tannins that will support at least a few more years, probably more.

An immediate hit of pear and smooth bubbles with a strong green apple flavour emerging theough the rest of the glass. While relatively sweet it has a robust flavour and isnt as much crisp as it is a fantastically enjoyable apperatif.
