With a saturated, ruby color the 2005 Secolo is all about aromatics, finesse and elegance. It has a pebbly, minerality notes with shades of blackberry, dried herbs, mocha, showcasing it's cooler vintage attributes. Although not as "big" as the 2004, it still packed a lot of black cherry, currant fruits with complex sandalwood, and leafiness. It finishes with mild tannins that remind you that aging will reward, yet is unusually caressing at this stage. This wine's sexiness is its balance and aromatics, uncommon in California Red Meritage wines, which should make a convert out of any die hard, Red Bordeaux fans.
