The 2009 The Fimasaurus cuts a larger swath across the palate and seems to have more spice, clove, and wood seasonings than the other cuvees, while the 2011 is very up-front, charming, medium-bodied, aromatic, spicy and round.

A new wine this year, the 2009 The Fimasaurus is rich, layered and exceptionally polished. Dark blue/black fruits, smoke, licorice, menthol, melted road tar and mocha all flesh out in the glass. Today, The Fimasaurus is all about textural depth and layers of flavors, all beautifully woven together. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot. - Antonio Galloni

Aromas of ripe dark berry, black licorice, mocha, charcoal and smoky oak give this a rich mouthfeel. The fruit is sweet and showy, ending with pleasantly chewy tannins and great length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2028. 75 cases made.
