wonderful supertuscan. This CS and CF blend in far beyond best expectations. Mavellous nose of ripe red berries and light oak, rubin-garnet colour at the eye. The mouth is juicy and round with a series of hints from subtle red fruit to chocolate and red berries to leather and sweet dried fruit. "Drop dead gorgeous" just to mention a previous tasting note. Unfortunately it is hard to find another blend like this (Paleo is now made of CF only).
Nose: still a little fruit but more like stewed fruit, almost tomato. Also stewed sweet fruit, and some secondary notes like leather. Some herbs as well. Nose: nice tartness. The leather makes it through onto the palate. Hint of unripe strawberries and stems. A little dusty.
The last of CS for this wine (blend is 70%CS/30%CF), having gone to 100% CF in '01. This is absolutely spectacular juice. Striking nose of black cherry, cola, licorice, and wild herbs. Beautiful and elegantly textured. Very sexy yet quite complex. Wood is not shy here, but all is forgiven. Really a strange hybrid of Bordeaux tastes wrapped in a Burgundian package. While I can't sat this speaks of Italy I can say this is drop dead gorgeous. Really came alive with the lamb kabobs. No one would not love this! Drinking perfectly at the moment. I now see why all the hubbub about Paleo.
