Spann Vineyards Supertuscan Blend Russian River Valley Mo Jo 2006
Nestled among the majestic coastal redwoods of the Mayacamas Mountains, our steeply terraced mountainside vineyard yields small amounts of richly flavored Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Sangiovese grapes. From this and select cool-climate vineyards throughout Sonoma County we craft limited quantities of European-style blended wines, strongly influenced by Bordeaux, the Rhone Valley and Tuscany.
Big rich nose, with a hefty helping of medicinal notes and some black cherry and light leather. Very light tannins, medium+ acidity, medium body. Refined. Still fruit forward. Juicy. Interesting. Sangiovese / Cab / Merlot. $thirtysomething
