Product Overview

A dense ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet nose of high class cigar tobacco intermixed with smoke, minerals, black currants, and vanilla. In the mouth, it is dense, medium to full-bodied, with superb richness, purity, and overall harmony. Really kicks in on the fresh, bright finish. Perfect with game, red meats and aged cheese.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 89
The Sammarco (an 85% Cabernet Sauvignon/15% Sangiovese blend aged 18-24 months in wood) offers a Graves-like nose of scorched earth, charcoal, tobacco, and red and black currants. In the mouth, roasted nut flavors add complexity. The wine possesses medium body, a stylish, elegant personality, not much power or force, but fine purity and balance. The tannin results in a slight astringency in the back of the mouth. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.-Robert Parker

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

A thoroughly caressing and delicious red. Very pretty, with rose, berry, plum and coffee aromas. Full-bodied, with soft and velvety tannins and a long, ripe fruit finish. Drink now through 2005. 3,000 cases made. –JS
