    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red in color with garnet hues, this well-structured wine's characteristics express the perfect union of the three varieties that make up the Modus blend. Hints of sweet tobacco and spice lead to inviting aromas of cherries, blackberries and plums. This full-bodied wine is rich with refined, silky tannins and a long finish of mint, chocolate and red berry essences.

    50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    James Suckling

    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.

    Wine Enthusiast

    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.
