100 points: (JL98-100 points) With a beautiful, inky hue, this wine explodes with smoke, blackberry liqueur, dark chocolate, truffle and cherry blossoms on the nose. Liquid silk does not begin to describe the texture, but it's close...

I purchased a lot from JJB when I previously lived in California... Always better prices and they'd hold bottles until I put together cases to ship. Great customer service. I moved to Italy 4 years ago and was out of the loop, but I'm back and happy to go with JJ!
