2016 Sangiovese, Penny Lane Vineyard
100% Single-Vineyard Sangiovese, Oakville, Napa Valley
This single-vineyard sourced Sangiovese hails from our heralded Oakville District, just up to Penny Lane Vineyard, a short walk from our own vines. Once again, Saddleback Sangiovese shows a clarity in the glass that nods at a prized purity of flavor. On the nose, find cherries and stone fruit. On the palate, rich yet delicate pomegranate is balanced by black olive and espresso notes. This vintage features a remarkably smooth finish and graceful tannins. With a light-to-medium body, it's an obvious red choice as the weather heats up.
Pair with tomato-based sauces, roasts, picnic lunches, charcuterie.
Only 280 cases produced. Posse wine club selection March 2019.
