93 Points~ Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
This 56% Sangiovese, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon combination exhibits a semi-opaque ruby-garnet color and a seductive nose of wild raspberries, black cherries, plums, rose petals, sweet tobacco, mulberry, orange peel, sandalwood and incense. The flavors, as well, are dramatic, with layers of thick black and red fruits that are infused with licorice, dark cocoa, French roast and silty minerals. The penetration continues on the back with roasted berries and chestnuts, mocha, ground charcoal and burnt toast, followed by a lingering dryish moderate tannin finish that evokes a “Super Tuscan” red.~Rand Sealey
Our version of a “Super Tuscan”, the unofficial star of Italian wines, the S.T is a hit every vintage. The 2015 vintage was a challenging year as it was the hottest growing season on record—a step up from the hot 2013 vintage and even hotter 2014. Thishot, sunny growing season yielded a full-bodied wine with ripe flavors and formidable tannins. The percentages of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon are the same as the 2014 but it is a completely different wine this year. Give it 30 minutes in a decanter and enjoy!
