2007 Sangiovese

2007 Sangiovese

The first red wine to be released from the elegant and expressive 2007 vintage, our Sangiovese is lithe and playful. Four rows of vines planted on South-facing slopes are meticulously managed by leaf pulling and fruit thinning, ripening a tiny crop of grapes that produces our most limited-production wine. The aromatic fruit profile includes red plums, raspberries and cranberries enhanced by subtle notes of rum raisin and hard candy. The blend is simple, with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from our Carolyn’s block added to bring richness to the mid-palate and provide the structure to balance the wine’s natural acidity.

    Aside from Jonata in the Santa Barbara area, and a few other wineries, few estates make Sangiovese as interesting as Pride Mountain. There is not much of it, and it is always bottled in a 500 ml, but their 2007 Sangiovese is another winner. Beautiful aromas of cedar, strawberry jam, black currants, tobacco leaf, and forest floor are followed by a spicy, deep ruby/plum/purple-colored wine with medium to full body, lots of fruit, good acidity, and a sexy, complex personality. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
