Wow. Compelling wine. Tight and unyielding on day 1, singing five octaves on day 2. Not at all overripe or hot, this is well balanced with ample acidity and a firm tannic structure. Cool red and black fruits, savory herbs and bloody meat, black licorice and granitic mineral. Pure and authentic Syrah from California. Brilliant!
Delicious Sangiovese nearing its peak. Tannins are silky, the fruit is dense and lemon-squirt acidity keeps it juicy. From magnum, so 750s may be more advanced. Plenty of material here, will continue to improve..
