($98) Full, deep red, slightly less saturated than the Gallina. Plum, menthol and nutty, smoky oak on the nose, along with a hint of exotic spices; conveys a cooler character than the Gallina. Sweet on entry, then minerally, young and unforthcoming in the middle palate, with firm acids. Has a solid core of fruit, but today the wine's substantial tannins dominate the finish. This will need time.Author: Stephen Tanzer
