One of the world's most famous composers named one of his musical compositions Capriccio Italien. We believe we have created a wine which deserves to be identified by the same name as the music written 125 years ago. Hence, for the pleasant of experiences, forget about food and wine pairings. Instead, try this wine with a little Tchaikovsky.

Tasting Notes
This wine has a beautifully deep ruby color with a complex nose of ripe plum, blackberry, currant, and minerals. The mouthfeel is enormous with flavors of dried cherry, anise, and leather. The long finish and tannins leave one eager for the next sip.
Dark cherry, vanilla and prominent wood-spice aromas show on the nose of this blend of 50% Sangiovese, 16% Malbec, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. Ripe red-cherry and cedar flavors are wrapped in decent tension on the palate. — M.K.
Vineyard Notes
The 2018 vintage saw an almost ideal balance of vine health and stress, as is often the case with the first dry year after a very wet one. The rain came late, delaying the onset of bud break and the beginning of the growing season. The cool weather continued most of the year, punctuated by a six-week heatwave in July and early August. Temperatures moderated before picking began and harvest proceeded under slightly cooler than normal conditions producing fruit with intense flavors and good balancing acidity.
