Midlife Crisis Sangiovese 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Strawberry and other bright berries play across the nose, with underlying herbal notes. bright berries explodes in the mouth then gives way to layers of cola and sweet oregano. tannins are soft and there is a light oak spiciness. This wine would be great with mozzarella cheese with basil and olive oil.

Offers an array of nutty, red-woody, hot spicy tones and a big dried figgy fruit note. There are interesting notes of tea, cola and dried beef adding complexity. Big sweet entry, then a bit chewy with lots of subtly jammy undertones, mulberry jam, some mulling spice, a touch of pie crust and lots of fig newtons but with a gentle herbal note as well. A little licorice on the backend leads to the long fruit driven finish that is slightly medicinal/minty. A huge Sangiovese fruit bomb. 86pts

So I guess this is what happens when you take a classic old-world grape and bring it to the new. sangiovese meets australian shiraz fruit bomb. not at all what I was expecting, which is a good thing. I love not getting what I expect when the result is still delicious. Went great with ravioli with red sauce.

fresh strawberry and raspberry predominate on the nose with underlying kitchen herb elements including oregano and fennel. Cola and nutmeg mingle with raspberry across the mid and back palate. oak adds a hint creamy vanilla on the finish. This wine would be great with mozzarella cheese with basil and olive oil.
