Color: Light garnet
Nose: Bright and fruity with a jammy nose.
Palate: A delightful wine that combines the elegance and suppleness of Merlot and Syrah with the austerity of Sangiovese. Balanced, almost musical, its a pleasure to drink from an early age and also has an aging potential of 5-8 years.
"From the Tuscan estate of Angelo Gaja, Promis
delivers all the gorgeous intensity and complexity you
should expect. The wine oozes notes of dark chocolate,
cherry liqueur, spice, blackberry and moist tobacco.
The mouthfeel is soft, smooth and absolutely delicious.
"A rich and decadent red, with ripe berry and roasted meat. Full and velvety-textured, with an attractive finish. Needs to come together. Best after 2011."
"The 2007 Promis is a warm, soft offering laced with smoke, dark fruit, spices, and subtle hints of earthiness. There is a wonderful centeredness - for lack of a better word - to the fruit that I don't recall seeing in previous vintages. An enveloping finish rounds out the Promis in style. Promis is 55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, and 10% Sangiovese that spent 12 months in used French oak barrels prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity 2010-2015."
The Wine Advocate
I thought the 2006 was a terrific wine for the money. The 2007 was fine and thoroughly enjoyable, but lacked a smooth finish.
