2014 - Sangiovese

Our Sangiovese is grown on an historic vineyard halfway up Soda Canyon Road to Atlas Peak. This site was originally planted with grapes and olive trees in 1883 by farmer and merchant Felix Borreo. Bright cherry fruit and savory spice make our Sangiovese delightful.

Vintage Notes A series of warm days and cool nights pushed Napa Valley’s vintners and growers across the annual harvest finish line by the third week of October. This year’s harvest will go down as one of the earliest ever in Napa Valley and it will also be noted for near-perfect weather throughout the growing season, resulting in a fairly abundant and very high-quality crop. Despite the drought, vintners are using words like, “quality,” “depth of flavor” and “excellent” to describe their expectations for the 2014 vintage. Many are also using “good fortune” among the blessings they are counting in a season where Mother Nature threw a curveball.
