Cabernet Sauvignon, Italy, Merlot, Red Wine, Toscana IGT, Tuscany

Had this with dinner of Fettuccine and Ragu sauce. Great wine to go with the food. Mostly Merlot and Cab, this IGT is a real crowd-pleaser. Somewhat Bordeaux-like, but with more weight of fruit and more funk than I am used to from Bordeaux at this young age. Black and red fruits like blackberry, black currant, plum, and some cherry. Tobacco, earth, and dried herbs. You can tell that this is young, still, as it has ferocious structure and fruit, yet it manages to stay in balance with ample acidity and a sappy, lip-smacking finish. Really a nice wine, especially considering the moderate cost point. Recommended.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
