Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Sangiovese from Napa opens with a mild blueberry bouquet with a hint of menthol, vanilla oak, and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty blueberry and boysenberry blend with notes of black cherry. I also detected hints of oak, raisin and black pepper. The finish is dry and its food friendly. I would pair this very good wine spaghetti and homemade meatballs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Perfumed aromas of dried flowers, red plum, sweet exotic spices and wild berry flavors framed by supple, toasty oak. It pairs quite well with fish in a rich sauce, grilled meats and vegetables in garlic and olive oil, pastas with mild sausage and antipasti with flavorful cheeses

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





"Bottles of wines aren't like paintings. At some point, you need to consume them. The object of life is to die with no bottles in your cellar. To drink your last bottle of wine and go to sleep that night and not wake up."
