TASTING NOTES:

(85% cabernet sauvignon and 15% cabernet franc): Deep red-ruby. Knockout nose combines raspberry dark cherry smoke coffee minerals and sexy coconutty oak. Then rich and very complex without any undue weight on the palate offering deep concentrated flavors of dark cherry blackberry cassis balsamic herbs and cedar. This still very young wine offers a rare combination of density intensity of flavor and vinosity finishing with fine-grained tannins and subtle notes of pepper and herbs. Along with the 2004 this is my choice for the best Sassicaia of the last 20 years in a classic ultra-clean and refined style.

Beautiful aromas of summer fruits and hints of cream. Then turns to dried Provençal herbs, such as rosemary. Well-defined Sass. Full-bodied, with sleek, refined tannins and a silky finish. All in finesse. Classy wine. Almost chewy. Reminds me of the excellent 1997, but this is slightly better. Give it time. Best after 2008.
