Another Baby BABY IGT

Obscure ruby with completely staining red edges.  Concentrated fruit-reduction entry tied with an overt ripe citrus and gamey balance.  I like this quite a bit.  It isn’t one of my favorite IGT’s, but is perfectly serviceable and does a good job of awakening my Cali sensibilities to the fact that all Super-Tuscans are not necessarily incredible fruit-bombs.  Incredible acid on entry, tied seamlessly into the tannin which will grow and overcome.  The beautiful bright-prune nose associates perfectly with the beautiful bright-plum taste.  Nearly obnoxious tannins obliterate everything in the end.  This thing is SUCH a baby.  Almost criminal to serve it presently.
