K Vintners Guido Sangiovese 2013

External Review:

From Jack’s Vineyard (formerly Lefore), this was planted in 1997, with cuttings from Leonetti. It has some of the leafy, crunchy character of Brunello, along with high acidity and a pretty mix of strawberry and red plum flavors.

First there was K Vintners, then the Magnificent Wine Company and now winemaker Charles Smith brings you his latest revelation. Charles Smith Wines: The Modernist Project is a response to how people generally consume wine today, that is immediately…as in immediately after being purchased at a market, restaurant or bar, to be drunk straight away. Wine in this category is typically ether simple, or is a wine that would be much better a few years down the road. ‘Modernist Project’ wines are about putting as much into the bottle as possible. The intent is to create wines to be enjoyed now, but with typicity with regards to variety—that is merlot that tastes like merlot—and to the vineyard—wine that tastes like where it was grown. The wines are full of flavor, balanced, and true to their place of origin. Owner-winemaker Charles Smith with his big hair, kick ass attitude and bold packaging arrived in the Walla Walla Valley following eleven years in Scandinavia managing rock bands. Originally hailing from northern California, he has been involved with wine personally and professionally his entire life. Read less

A 100% Sangiovese that was first produced in 2003 from a plot of vines planted in 1996, the 2010 Sangiovese Guido is a firm, age worthy red that has cedar-laced aromas of dry-aged beef, toasted spice, dried herbs and saddle leather giving way to full-bodied, balanced palate. Showing solid concentration and plenty of tannin on the finish, it needs 3–4 years in the cellar. Drink 2016–2025.
