Tasting Notes

The most sought-after wine has a balance between its fruit and earth components. Grippy tannins noticeable but unobtrusive, not contradictory as putting a black tea bag in your mouth, emphasized with dark chocolate and sweet tobacco flavors. Hints of oregano and dried rose petals. The aftertaste make this wine taste 100% savory from start to finish.

Vineyard Designation

Sams Valley

Vineyard Notes

Our Small acreage of Sangiovese continues to be a crowd Favorite. This block was planted next to the large hay barn. We are pretty sure that reflection of the two-story silver barn is what causes this block to be the first to show signs of bud swell in the spring. It has its own little greenhouse effect. This helps the varietal grow to beautiful ripeness and balance.

Pairings

Fresh fruit, seafood and great with fresh ricotta and honey. Great with Vegetarian dishes. Brings out more fruit flavors.
