90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc

"A red of great purity and polish, offering black cherry, blackberry, spice and herb flavors, this evokes tobacco, graphite and leather nuances as it builds nicely on the palate. Finishes with grip, harmony and complexity, as well as terrific length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2028. From Italy. -B.S" (WS)

"Succulent red cherry, raspberry jam, flowers, mint and new French oak meld together in the 2013 Tenuta Belguardo. Forward and open-knit, the 2013 will drink well with minimal cellaring. The 2013 is not particularly complex, but the purity of the fruit is striking. This is a strong vintage for the flagship Tenuta Belguardo, Mazzei's Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc blend." (VM)

"Very polished red here with blueberry, hazelnut and floral character. Medium body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Persistent on the palate. Cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. Drink or hold." (JS)

"Made with 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, this boasts aromas of black currant, mature plum, black pepper and clove. The ripe palate delivers fleshy black cherry, blackberry, licorice and Mediterranean brush accompanied by firm, fine-grained tannins." (WE)
