Tasting Notes

A brilliant Super Tuscan that's a blend based mostly on Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. If wine ever makes you think of color, the obvious color that comes to mind is black, as in a variety of mixed black fruits and berries and chocolate. Aged entirely in French oak and, gratefully, still retains finesse.

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Merlot

The next time you hear someone say they never touch Merlot, tell them that it's too bad, because you were just about to open a few bottles of Château Pétrus and Le Pin, and you have no one to share them with.

Sangiovese has shown itself in recent years to be an excellent...

Super Tuscan

Originally, this term was used to classify high quality Tuscan wines that fell outside the parameters set forth by the DOC. Now, however, the term can apply to virtually any wine from Tuscany which chooses, for one reason or another, not to fall into one of the DOC classifications (such as Chianti). Super Tuscans can be 100% Sangiovese, or they can be blends of any number of indigenous or...

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California,...
