Winemaker's Notes

#46 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. Soft supple and rich the Greppicante is delicious. Packed with hints of spice, berry, and meat this wine has fantastic concentration and depth to it.

Critical Acclaim

"Deliver currant, toasty oak and coffee aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a lot of rich fruit. Very polished and attractive. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best after 2012."
92 Points

"The estate’s 2007 Greppicante (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc) is a much more serious wine, yet it too offers terrific value. A fragrant, seamless wine, the 2007 Greppicante captures the essence of Bolgheri in its dark fruit, spices, minerals and herbs, showing outstanding balance and tons of style. The finish is long, sweet and harmonious. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012. "

You can smell the berries after the oak aroma settles down. As I tasted it It had a smooth oaky and berry taste. Yet after the smoothness ended the bitter taste of eucalyptus over powered the other flavors.
