Description

 

Last year, I had to transfer 10 additional 6 packs in to accommodate demand.  Considering the fact that I saw this wine for $81 at Central Market, I would say this is a smoking-good value.  It is beautifully balanced and approachable. It was a great surprise when a friend served it from a decanter and asked, "Do you have any idea what this is?" This is as good as any Bordeaux for twice the price.  

Winemaker Notes

Il Pino shows an intense nose with ripe fruit and some spicy notes. The oak is well integrated and adds complexity and balance to the fruit. The wine is medium to full bodied with ripe tannins, fine acidity and great length. The wine has all the components to develop beautifully in the next 7 to 10 years.

Blend: 52% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 15% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim


Wine Spectator 93 Points
Intense, displaying concentrated dark fruit flavors of blackberry, plum and cassis, with a hint of cedar. Polished, balanced and hard to resist now due to the expressive profile of ripe fruit. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

James Suckling 93 Points
Beautiful, ripe dark berries with dried flowers and sandalwood on the nose. Full and rich, yet in check, thanks to the fine, firm tannins that give composure to this pretty red. Needs a little time to soften, but a beauty already
