Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is Masi's gentle giant.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of crushed violet, baked plum, cake spice, ripe berry and tobacco pervade in this bold, full-bodied red. The firm palate offers ripe black cherry, fig, mocha, nutmeg, licorice and tobacco alongside velvety tannins.

Wine SpectatorFinely balanced and silky, with the herb, mineral and woodsy spice elements of a more traditional version, bolstered by plenty of ripe wild cherry and dried strawberry fruit. Fresh and medium-bodied, delivering light, dusty tannins on the coffee-tinged finish. Drink now through 2026. 40,000 cases made.
