San Fabiano Calcinaia Casa Boschino Toscana 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Spicy sweet cherry and berries on the nose

Good acidity and well-integrated flavors on the palate

More cherry, spices, vanilla, and a nice earthy layer

I picked this up on a half price sale ($10 marked down from $20). When I see a Tuscan red blend on sale, I'll always grab it. The chances of being pleasantly surprised are extremely good.

This wine has a terrific balance of sweet and spicy cherry fruit along with tightness and acidity. There's also an underlying earthy layer that's nice. Raise a glass to a Tuscan bargain!
