They just make the loveliest sangiovese in Cali. 2011 has a little more perfumed floral quality, less dark fruit and more of a bright cherry character.

Needs a little time to open up. But full circle fresh, fruity, touch of darkness.

Not very Sangiovese, but plenty tasty with pot roast and polenta. Richly fruited, with just enough acid too keep it from feeling blowsy.

2011, really wanted to like this wine but unimpressed, nice flavor but thin on the palette, little structure

Stolpman feels this is their best vintage to date, and I agree! Medium bodied, floral and bright cherry notes, soft tannins. Extremely drinkable!

Thoroughly enjoyed this perfectly aged Sangiovese. A fuller bodied ver of its old world cousin, so well crafted.
