2015 Sangiovese Peter's Vineyard
“This Estate grown fruit is a shining example of the fine Italian varietal. On the nose, you'll find the classic red fruit aromas of cherry, red plum, red currants and strawberry with just a touch of violet floral. On the palate, the bright mountain fruit acidity anchors the more subtle blackberry, anise, and unsweetened cocoa.” - Justin Carr
An early bud break, one of the longest flowering periods in years, and a long growing season produced a vintage that shines in quality. Spring started fast and an early bloom was met with a dip in temperature, wind and rains, which slowed the development and reduced yields. The result was a small crop of extremely well-concentrated fruit that ripened fully and slowly before an early harvest in August.
