Ca' Marcanda (Gaja) - Promis
full bodied purple wine with deep aromas and a solid backbone. Syrah like body with dark berry notes, leather, and integrated tannins. Very intriguing for the price point.
Louis M Martini - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
One of the best wines for the price you can get. Napa valley signature for medium weight, cherry, smooth, and easy drinking. Great for all occasions.
Leal - Cabernet Sauvignon Godsend
Big, rich, chewy and fantastic glass coating aromas. This is one of the best wines out of San Bentito and it can compete with napa. Try them if you get a chance. Dark blackberry, dark chocolate, leather, and oak notes. Finish leaves you wanting more. I would say the 2003 is peaking of slightly past but very enjoyable at this stage.
Felsina - Chianti Classico Rancia Riserva (Berardenga)
This is a big wine, full bodied and quite tannic but the flavor profile will wow you. The complexity and layers shine with each taste with dark cherry, wild blueberry, wet stone, and a long finish. It settled down after the first night. This is a great wine
Storybook Mountain - Zinfandel Mayacamas Range
A great everyday plus zin. Medium weight, nice briar notes, some heat but integrated well with cherry and oak. Nicely done
