Vintage: The 2005 growing season was an exceptional vintage that produced beautifully balanced, aromatic wines with intense, focused flavors. Spring conditions were mild, but by mid-June temperatures began to rise and the summer stayed hot. As if on command, the heat backed off just enough in September to allow the grapes to spend extra time on the vine and reach their full maturity. It was the perfect ending to an ideal vintage that will certainly be remembered as one of the decade's finest.
This Super Tuscan style wine offers delicate fig and baking spice aromas. Bright red fruit and dark cherries enhance the wine's balanced structure. The finish is long and concentrated with a hint of ripe pomegranate.
