Paul O'Brien 2014 Il Rinnegati Red (Southern Oregon)

This stunning effort pays tribute to the Super Tuscan style, and it carries the weight of genuine experience. Co-owner/winemaker Scott Kelley worked several vintages in Montalcino on the Mondavi/Frescobaldi Luce/Lucente project. The blend here is 62% Sangiovese, 31% Merlot and 7% Syrah. The wine is both floral and fruity, still young and spicy. At first the barrel flavors seem a bit raw, but with decanting they smooth out and a pleasing black cherry and mocha flavor takes hold.
