An explosive, captivating wine, the 2009 Futo bursts from the glass with an exotic melange of incense, tobacco, wild flowers, licorice and plums. Full-bodied and racy, the 2009 covers every inch of the palate with stunning depth and purity. The tannins are firm and quite present, but there is so much fruit they are nearly buried. Readers will be tempted to drink the 2009 young, but my impression is that patience will be highly rewarded. This is yet another striking, totally compelling wine. (AG)
Pointedly rich and concentrated, this weaves intense blackberry, dark berry fruit and plum notes, with gutsy tannins that impart a chewy edge. Seems to be a more-restrained Futo, true to the milder vintage. Ends with a fresh cigar box taste. (JL)
Bright full ruby. Wild, slightly porty aromas of cassis, black cherry, singed plum, dark chocolate, licorice and minerals. Plush, broad and sweet, conveying an almost exotic chocolatey ripeness to its cassis, black cherry and menthol flavors. A large-scaled wine with baby fat to lose. Finishes with major tongue-coating tannins but little in the way of restraint. I liked this wine a lot at the outset but today one glass would be enough. I believe the same raw materials vinified at Futo today would produce a wine with more definition and energy. (ST)
