Principal varietal(s):

I've tried a couple of bottles of this wine, and both times rated it down a notch or two from the usual Seghesio quality and style. While possessing the usual ripe dark berry fruit in the nose, the texture seemed somewhat sharper and flatter, and in one of the bottles there were some intrusive dry woody aromas and flavors - not toasty or sweet or spicy oak, but a weedy, earthy edge that I thought detracted from the otherwise excellent ripe black fruit. A good wine, just didn't measure up to my usual very high Seghesio expectations. - HK 2009-02-25
