The tannins are ripe and round; affording early drinkability as well as great aging potential. Vintners are praising the full flavors, fresh acidity and superb balance of the 2019 vintage.

Our 2019 Sangiovese opens with aromas of violet, new leather and wild raspberry. Ample elegance reigns with this red fruit-oriented beauty. Silky tannins and integrated acid with subtle oak spice.

Winemaker Notes

The 2019 growing season started later than usual in many California wine regions. A wet spring followed by cool temperatures allowed the grapes to mature gradually. Cool temperatures continued throughout the growing season resulting in longer hang time and lower sugar yields. Vintners are praising the full flavors, fresh acidity and superb balance of the 2019 vintage.

Production Notes

The grapes were crushed and destemmed to a stainless steel tank for a two-day cold soak, then fermented to dryness at relatively warm temperatures. After pressing the wine off the skins, it was racked to barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine aged for 18 months in 25% new Hungarian and French oak barrels, with the remaining in neutral oak barrels.

Vineyard Notes

Alexander Valley is located north of the town of Healdsburg in Sonoma County. It is one of the warmer AVAs in the region making it the perfect spot for red Bordeaux grapes. The fruit for our 2019 vintage came from our Anderson (55%) and Michalek (45%) vineyards in Alexander Valley.
