Review:

A great example of Sangiovese from the Northwest, this combines the old-world charm of a Chianti Classico with the robust fruit of Washington. Cedar, leather, dark cherry, a touch of spiced, dried orange peel, and dark red currants, with a burly structure up front that calls for a good piece of meat. It softens up nicely with air, showing broad flavors while keeping a Tuscan flare. From Seven Hills, Kiona, and Kestrel vineyards. - Marcus

Covington's Sangiovese: Bright acidity, mineral notes, dark cherry, spice and earth.

2008 Wine Advocate - 90 points - The 2008 Sangiovese is sourced from the Kiona and Seven Hills Vineyards and aged in 20% new French oak. Toasty cherries, spice box, and rose petal aromas lead to a slightly tart, cherry-dominated palate accompanied by plenty of spice and a firm acid structure. Drink this pleasing effort over the next 8 years. - Jay Miller
