This is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot and 18% Syrah, done in a very tight, tannic, somewhat reductive style. It has definitely got the structure to age, and you will taste a mix of rock and barrel toast underscoring the clean, crisp, tart berry and cassis fruit. It’s as good a Tre Fanciulli as JM Cellars has ever done.
This top tier blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, and 14% Syrah has a vein of sweet blackberry fruit that is wonderfully compelling. It dives into striated layers of rock, pencil, earth, bark, smoke and herb––not yet comingled, but fascinating.
