Latah Creek Sangiovese Wahluke Slope 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Everyone who has tasted our Sangiovese is as excited about it as we are. Just saying the word "Sangiovese" conjures up thoughts of the wonderfully fruity Chianti wines produced in the Tuscany region of Italy. This extremely versatile red is a relative newcomer to the wine scene of Washington State having only been in production the last few years. The grapes for our wine come from the same vineyards as our Cabernet, Merlot, and others - the Wahluke Slope Vineyards in central Washington. This vineyard region continually produces some of the best wine in the state. The components seen in this Washington State Sangiovese are very typical of its Tuscan cousin; wonderful berry-like fruit flavors combines with subtle Italian herbs, nice bright red/purple color, and aromas of cherry and cassis. light oak aging adds complexity to the wine and softens the feel on your palate. Enjoy this wine as an everyday "house red". It is a wonderful accompaniment with everything from game birds, pasta dishes and pizzas to pork roasts. I am especially intrigued by the lingering clove sensation that remains in the mouth long after the wine is gone.

This is different from a lot of Sangios that I've had. It's not the same typical muddy color, and it's not as dirty smelling either. It maintains a lightness but is much more like a bright and lively Chianti. Not only was it fantastic on it's own, but it makes a wonderful mulled wine! Perfect for those nights when you are sitting in the hot tub - especially after a long day of skiing!
