Shenandoah Valley, Sierra Foothills

Vino Noceto

Hillside Sangiovese 2011

Lighter color. Rusty edge. Smells good like cherries and berries of the mountain. Flavors are savory with an olive streak. Hint smokey and chewy. Clean and dry. Bit of candy in it. But it’s balanced and elegant. Nice. — 11 days ago

Attractive translucent purple, floral and red fruit aromas, taste of cherries and red fruit with light tannins and slight residual sugar. Delicious. — 2 months ago

Keplinger

Lithic Shake Ridge Vineyard Grenache Blend 2011

Luv Keplinger Rhône Valley Blends! These grapes are from Amador County. Nice to compare it to her Napa blend. Color - med reddish-brown. Plum and raspberry-cherry fruit bounce off the nose with a floral smoke and tobacco scent; some mineral, wet tea and orange peel lingers. Taste is a definite sweet raspberry with some tar, cedar, crushed rock and vanilla-caramel taste on the mid-pallet. Tannins are well integrated and should drink now. — 4 months ago
