2017 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 rubarb, dark chocolate and stone fruit. On the palate, rich yet delicate red cherry and bosch pear, is balanced by star anise and espresso notes. This vintage features a remarkably smooth finish and structured tannins. With a light-to-medium body, it's an obvious red wine choice for a springtime picnic.
