2006 San Giusto a Rentennano Percarlo Toscana IGT Sangiovese
6/7/2019 - Caruso Likes this wine:

Ruby with only a minimal hint (if at all) of orange hue to the rim. From the start it shows an intoxicating intense nose of black cherries, black currants, tobacco, blueberries, mushrooms with lovage and earth. On the palate it shows enormous power and intensity, but it is also complex and balanced. Yes, there is considerable tannin which is a bit adstringent in the finish, but the fruit remains long on the palate and for me it is already ready to drink since the tannin is balanced by the concentration of fruit and flavors. Finishing with almost salty minerality. 5/15/19/10. If you like this with less tannin, forget it for at least 10 years in a textbook cellar. 2019-2035+

2006 Pax Syrah Cuvée Keltie North Coast

Paxs 2006 are really special. This wine at 14.1 booze shares with the majik and Kobler density and liveliness. You wouldn't peg them as new world nor 12 years old. This one is floral, more beef blood and cherry. I liked the others way more but this is solid and probably a top syrah in the states.
