2004 Grattamacco Bolgheri Rosso

The blend of 50% Cabernet, 30% Merlot and 20% Sangiovese came from Gargiste for a tab of $19.99.

There was a lot going on in both the aromas and flavors. On the nose I picked up cedar, rose petal, earthy plum, strawberry and raspberry. This carried through on the palate, along with bittersweet chocolate and coffee. It had a lingering cranberry-like finish.

I feel this wine is drinking nicely right now and has a nice melange of flavors that keep it interesting, never tiring. It's well worth a two thumbs up recommendation.

Here's my choice for the matching YouTube video (click here if you don't see it below):
