2012 CCW Sangiovese
Horse Heaven Hills AVA
March 12, 2014
Darker than some Sangiovese you can tell this is a beefy wine when you pour it into your glass. A dark red color with aromatics of Bing cherries, currents, and toasted oak can be smelled. The palette has more cherry flavors and dried strawberries along with some mild leather and chocolate. This wine drinks great on its own or pairs with a nice classic spaghetti and meatball dish.

Sangiovese has always been a wine I enjoy and I wanted to try and bring out the acidity and crispness of the variety. By blending in Graciano, a big tannic wine, it added some weight to the wine. The brightness of the Sangiovese shines through and the wine finishes nicely.
