Pazzo Cellars Sangiovese Blend 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2004 Pazzo, a gorgeous blend of 64% Sangiovese and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Viognier, Zinfandel, and Charbono, is one of those wines that you wish every bistro and restaurant offered. A deep ruby color is accompanied by a sweet perfume of herbs, kirsch, spice, pepper, and earth. Supple-textured, seductive, and ripe, with decent acidity as well as loads of fruit and character, it admirably demonstrates what can be achieved by smart blending. It's too bad so many California wineries are obsessed with varietal bottlings. There are 3,000 cases of this beauty, which should continue to drink well for another 3-4 years.

For those who throw the big Porterhouse on the fire, Pazzo is a meaty wine to stand up to it. Filled with smoky flavors, dark cherry and pepper, this wine will match your grilled or smoked heavy meats and loves an au poivre. The velvety tannins will meet the protein to make a perfect summer match for a classic steakhouse pairing. A blend of Sangiovese, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Sirah and Viognier.

The seductive 2006 Pazzo may not be as rich as the 2005, but it offers a boatload of pleasure at a realistic price. It is a peppery, spicy, slightly herbal, deliciously fruity red that is meant to be consumed during its first 2ndash;4 years of life.

Sharp, zingy acidity marks this dry red wine. It's medium-bodied and silky, like a Pinot Noir, with rich cherry and oak flavors. Drink now.

The bistro-styled red is the 2007 Pazzo, one of the better values in the rather inflated pricing world of Napa Valley. A blend of Sangiovese and a few other grapes, the 2007 exhibits lots of roasted herb, pepper, spice, red and black fruit notes, a soft underbelly, and luscious density as well as purity. This sexy, seductive red should be consumed in its first 2andndash;3 years of life.
