Tight, firm and concentrated, with rich dried currant, lead pencil and dry, cedary oak that clamps down a bit on the finish, with a minerally edge. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Merlot, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Viognier. Drink now through 2015. 1,066 cases made. –JL

Bacio Divino’s flagship wine represents an intriguing blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, with small quantities of Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, and Merlot. The 2006 Bacio Divino Proprietary Red (1,000 cases) exhibits a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of melted licorice, black currants, blueberries, and raspberries. This opulent, fleshy, fruity 2006 is hard to resist. It is best drunk during its first 4-5 years of life.
