ACCOLADES

• Owen Bargreen (91 Points)

"Novel and complex with its sense of weight and earthy tones, the 2017 Sangiovese unveils ripe red currants that collide with smoky minerals and leather on the palate. Fresh and showing a soft mouthfeel, this has another eight to ten years at least ahead of it. Drink 2021-2031."

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of dried strawberry, red cherry, rhubarb, and sweet exotic spices framed by supple, toasty oak
Vineyard Notes
A blend of Sangiovese fruit from our own estate vineyard in the Diamond Mountain District along with fruit from Voyager Vineyard, with a touch of Napa Valley Merlot.
Production Notes
Winter provided a record-breaking rainfall, a welcome end to the 4 years of drought. Bloom and fruit set in May occured under ideal conditions. Summer was warm but the vines weathered the heat well and maturity moved along at a steady pace. The 2017 wine quality shows a lot of sweet fruit flavors and firm tannin structure in the reds. Looking like it will be another classic year! - Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking
Other Notes
Sangiovese is an historic red wine grape variety originating in Northern Italy, where it is recognized as the superior variety. It often forms part of a blend to create harmonious, focused food wines.
