Winemaker’s Notes

Luminous ruby color. Forest berries, spices, leather, moist earth and dried plum, layered in the aroma. Soft, round taste, well-balanced acidity and clean and persistent aftertaste. Very pleasing, and ready to drink.

Pair with flavorful first-course dishes, such as pasta, polenta, risotto, or with cheese and red meats.

Critical Acclaim

“Delicate floral nose with an earthy, slightly peaty background. Natural but very precise palate, with fine tannins and a concentrated, bone-dry finish which needs a little time to open up. ”

Blend:  55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 10% Sangiovese

     The proprietary name Promis (proh-MEESS) was created by the Gaja family to denote commitment, expectation, fulfillment, and hope. The promise of quality and the reward of diligence and excellence. The grapes are grown in terre brune (rich, dark soils) which consist primarily of loam and clay. The climate- hot summer days, freshened by brisk sea air and cool nights- is ideal for the grapes grown here. Promis is balanced and approachable in its youth with considerable aging potential (5-8 years).
     “The 2011 Promis (55% Merlot, 35% Syrah and 10% Sangiovese) is darkly concentrated with thick tones of black tar, espresso, candied cherry, clove, rum cake and bitter chocolate. Although it feels broad and large in the mouth, the wine also shows enormous elegance and focus. That inner opulence is channeled into tight, sharp pulses that impact the palate with grace and poise.”
93 points – The Wine Advocate
     “Bright, evoking ripe cherry, blackberry, black currant and spice flavors, this red is supported by acidity and firm tannins. Comes together on the finish, leaving a chalky, minerally aftertaste. Merlot, Syrah and Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2024.”
