Fast becoming one of the world’s top luxury cuvées, this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Syrah is a complex amalgam of dry, classy fruit, herbal notes, smoked meat, black pepper and baking spices. Its calling card is its perfect body weight. It isn’t heavy or jammy, but it manages to offer tons of stuffing and a graceful finish loaded with the essence of cola, coffee and chocolate. If possible, it should be cellared for several more years.

Spectacular, the 1999 Guado Al Tasso possesses sweet tannin and accessibility. Its explosive aromatics consist of smoke, licorice, espresso, chocolate, vanillin and celestial black cherries. With sensational concentration, flamboyant flavors, an opulent texture, full body, and brilliant concentration as well as delineation, it comes across as intense, balanced, pure, and rich. Anticipated maturity: now–2016.

Smoky, charry aromas are as tempting as the scent of steaks on a fire; the flavors only confirm the draw, with black cherry fruit that seems to require a fork and knife. It’s cabernet sauvignon and merlot with a touch of syrah, dense and delicious; a catch for the cellar.

Aromas of red licorice, with cut flowers and cumin and a hint of tarragon. Full-bodied, with tight and firm tannins, yet fresh and solid. Give this time; should open up. Slightly rustic. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Best after 2004. Tasted twice with consistent notes.

Produced from the vineyard that bears its name, Guado al Tasso located on the Tuscan coast in Bolgheri, is a unique blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Syrah. The wine is aged in 225 liter oak barrels for 14 months followed by 10 months in the bottle. An intense ruby red with luscious fruit flavors of cherry and cassis and hints of toast, coffee and dark chocolate. Finely structured and complex with balanced, soft tannins and a lingering finish.
