Dark purple in color, with amazing aromas of blackberry, currant, mineral and flowers. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins that are seamless and refined. Goes on and on. Coats every millimeter of the palate. So fine and complex. This is from a new estate.

The estate's 2004 Greppicaia, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc spent 15 months in small French oak. A fully saturated ruby, it offers masses of super-ripe dark fruit, smoke, licorice, tar and toasted oak flavors along with a big, powerful personality in a bold, if not particularly elegant, style.
