10/10 every time. I can’t get enough. I wish I could library it but I can’t keep my hands off of it.

Delicious. Different from an Italian Sangiovese but a fantastic wine.

The best Livermore Valley wine I've had. Also the only Livermore Valley wine I've had, so it's a rather meaningless statement. More reminiscent of a Zinfandel than a true Italian Sangiovese, with its jammy fruit and strawberry and cherry preserve. An enjoyable drink, but lacking the overall depth and wild style of its Italian cousins.
