"Firm and spicy, with drying earthy berry, black cherry, cedar and hazelnut, turning supple and elegant and gaining traction on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Syrah and Merlot. Drink now through 2016. 915 cases made." (WS)

"Perhaps the finest example I have ever tasted of the flagship offering, the 2007 Bacio Divino (Cabernet Sauvignon and small quantities of Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, and Merlot) boasts copious aromas of sweet creme de cassis fruit intermixed with wild strawberries, spice box, loamy soil, pepper, and roasted herbs. In the mouth, the wine reveals pure, rich, opulent fruit, medium to full body, no hard edges, and a luscious, fleshy style that is difficult to resist. It should age easily for 5-10 years, but it is already irresistible.

Interesting wines are produced by longtime winemaker, Claus Janzen." (WA)

"Interesting for its mix of sweet berries and currants along with hints of green olives and a slight tangy twist, this full-bodied bottling is very nicely balanced overall even if a bit fleshy at the front of the palate. Like its mate bottled under Janzen (see below), this wine has an outgoing and easily tasted personality yet boasts sufficient underlying structure to reward cellar aging. Reviewed: April 2010" (CG)

Winery Notes:
Bacio Divino shows a bright dark ruby color when poured, releasing aromas of blackberry and current (cassis) fruit, with nuances of sweet vanilla. The palate is rich, yet elegant, and mildly fruit-forward. Yet tannins, acid, oak and fruit are finely balanced in this wine. Bacio Divino is as individual as its name – ‘divine kiss’. We believe you will enjoy this vintage over the next decade or two.
