Sangiovese, Sonoma Valley (2017)

Tasting Notes

This intriguing Sangiovese introduces a mouth-watering fragrance of caramel and toasted espresso bean, accentuated by subtle notes of summer berries and lavender. The ripe fruit in the front of the palate is driven by bold black cherry notes balanced upon herbaceous traces of clove and mint leaf. The focused acidity of this wine brings an enjoyably tart pomegranate quality to its silky finish.

Vintage Notes

The 2017 growing season started out wet with record-breaking rainfall refreshing our vineyards after several dry years. The mild spring led to timely bud break and good fruit set, followed by ideal conditions of cool mornings and warm, sunny days throughout the summer months. Our first grapes of the season were “blessed” on August 25, officially beginning the St. Francis harvest. A few days of intense heat at the start of September sped up ripening throughout the region. Well-timed picks throughout the month meant the majority of fruit was in by the first week of October. Beautiful color, well-defined aromatics and outstanding flavor are all evident in this year’s vintage.
