Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines10% Sangiovese. Sure, its ripeness shows a bit, but it is fruit that tells the story here, not to mention balance, layering and caramel-smelling, creamed-coffee notes of generously laid-on oak. Nicely supple on the palate and tending ever so slightly to fleshiness in spite of its firming spine of age-providing tannins, this one runs to red berries as much as to blackberry in its character, and even though heat rises a bit at the end, the wine never loses sight of its central fruitiness.
International Wine CellarSaturated ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry and licorice pastille. Concentrated, sweet and lush, with slightly porty, unrefined dark fruit flavors showing a positive high-toned aspect and plenty of richness. Finishes with big, broad, rich tannins and very good chewy length.
