*2006 Bacio Divino Pazzo
Bacio Divino Pazzo Cellars Red, Napa Valley, USA 2006
This is a juicy and delicious wine that makes me recall the best blends from Italy and California. This wine has a richness that gives the wine great character, and a mouth-feel that makes it a pleasure to drink. Overall this is a seductive, lush, full bodied and savory wine that offers bold fruit and great depth.
