Novelty Hill Sangiovese Stillwater Vineyard 2008

Member Review by Wineshout:

Ripe, stewed fruits on the nose, reminiscent of hot, southern Italy in my wandering thoughts. Spicy, peppery, with a slightly bitter finish. I wrote in my initial notes that it is intense, though winemaker Mike Januik said “intense” is an adjective best reserved for camping trips, so I’ll try to scratch that. My immediate thought was that this would pair well, if not perfectly, with flank steak fresh of the grill. At only 188 cases, This one will most certainly be a hard-to-find wine. Wineshout.com
