2012 "Amante" Super Tuscan Style Red Wine Temecula Valley
Dark brick red color. Savory, earthy complex aromas and flavors of dried tomatoes, cherries and olives, roasted black walnuts and pecans drizzled with vanilla cream, clay and leather bound wood chair, and hint of beef bouillon with a satiny, bright, dry medium-to-full body and a smooth, very long borscht, cocoa, nuts, and earth finish with moderate oak. A superb American take on the difficult to replicate artisan Italian style that is reeling with earthy, savory fruit and oak flavors.
