Italian Reds (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): N: RIPE berries with aromas of smoke, choc, & coffee; QUITE unique, & unlike ANYTHING I can *ever* recollect!

P: Med body; NICE, ALMOST swtish frt nicely counterbalanced by acidity which slowly transitions into a LONG, very, VERY slightly tangy finish with notes of swtness to the hints of tannins. For now & through '19 "safely", VERY likely longer. I can see this going WELL with BBQ! 13% ABV; My VG+, poss EXC-. 91 pts Suckling, 88 WS, 87 WA, & 86 from a Decanter panel. [This vendor's $19.95 puts it in @ the top of wine-searcher's 2nd quartile.]

    11/23/18, 8:06 PM - I was going to open this tonight, but after reading your review I'm going to save it to eat with some BBQ next summer.

    We're in the middle of a snowstorm anyway. Maybe it's time to open the port.
