Winemaker's Notes

"With 10% Merlot for extra smoothness, this Cabernet Sauvignon has amazing intensity with plum, blackberry, leather, spice bread, clove, chocolate and menthol notes that leap out of the glass.

The structure is tight, the tannins a little youthfully astringent, but they allow the red fruit to show through. This is pretty and impressively long in its flavor, one of the better bets for aging among the Tuscan reds of the vintage."

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
