Vino Noceto Sangiovese California Shenandoah Valley 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very intense sweet cherry, vanilla and soft toast notes greet the nose. There is a slight medicinal note that combines with the black cherry fruit to give this a slight cough lozenge note. A nice hint of herb adds complexity. Big, rich sweet cherry fruit with just a hint of oak is well supported by tannins are a touch astringent, as they should be, and good acidity giving this a refreshing feel. Very medium bodied and with lightness that keeps this centered in the mouth despite the intensity of the rather simple yet pure cherry fruit. On the backend it turns a bit spice with a nice flourish of strawberry and herb adding to the long finish. Very solid wine and great for the bar-b-q this summer. 90pts

Dried cherries and dust. A really nice bone-dry sangio.
