2016 - Sangiovese

Our Sangiovese is grown on a 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 The near-perfect 2016 growing season started early, saw ideal weather conditions throughout and wrapped up as the valley's first significant fall rainstorm arrived on October 14. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness. Tasting Notes Aromas of black cherry, raspberry and rose petals. This medium-bodied wine exhibits flavors of lush cranberry-apple and cola.
