About

92

"A balanced red with plum and hints of milk chocolate. Cocoa. Medium-to-full body, with silky tannins and a delicious finish. Balanced and delicious."

91 Wine Enthusiast

"Modus delivers velvety aromas of black cherry, chocolate, leather, exotic spice and pipe tobacco. This super Tuscan blend is comprised of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and it does a very nice job of showing the soft side of those grape varieties, especially on the long finish."

90 Wine Spectator

"A sleek, pristine red, with vibrant acidity behind its cherry, strawberry and mineral aromas and flavors. The oak shows a light touch, and this resonates on the lively finish. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2013 through 2022. 12,500 cases made."
