Clear. Ligth brick color. Clean. Developing still, classic cabernet nose. Dark berries, some green notes, very elegant. Touching on medicinal. Sleek, elegant mouthfeel, lots of fruit. Fresh, silky tannins, but with a firm structure. Good length on the finish.
Clear. Deeply colored. Bricking at the edges. Clean. Med+ intense nose. Black fruits, wood, sweet notes of licorice, some leather notes as well. Balanced. Fresh still, good concentration, med+ tannins that are fine. Med acidity, med+ body. Good length on the finish. (From memory, notepad was blank)
From magnum. Juicy dark cherry on the refined nose with leather, beans and slight bell pepper. Medium bodied and refreshing - almost zingy - palatal feel with supple tannins. Lean fruit, slight greener character, bell pepper, liquorice, dark chocolate hints and something gravelly. Lengthy. I really digged this aroma profile and the overall lean style of the vintage. A beautiful wine, though many will find this simple and unpleasently greenish.
Tasting of 6 Italian Red Wines at Primas. Sported the typical cabernet nose, led to cherry fruit with a sweet/sour taste in the mouth, nice finish and seemed more California like than Italian. My #2 and Retail $29.95.
