Across the board, we find our 2008 reds to be stunning and expressive in the lush style reminiscent of 2002. While the 2007 wines are concentrated, structured and age-worthy as in 2001, the 2008’s are all about immediate gratification, with ripe, integrated tannins, a roundness in the mid-palate that is sure to seduce, and aromas that are simply off-the-charts. A severe April freeze drastically reduced crop levels, but perfect growing conditions allowed the light crop to reach intense levels of ripeness. Our Sangiovese has gorgeous flavors of dried berry, chocolate-covered cherry, graphite and sasparilla. Texturally, Sangiovese’s typical lean profile and ripe tannins are fleshed out by 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
