2011 2011 Saggi
- Winemaker Gilles Nicault
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Sangiovese/Cabernet Blend
The 2011 Saggi offers beautiful notes of spice box, cedar, licorice, dried herbs and assorted black cherry and dark currant styled fruit to go with a medium to full-bodied, focused and layered feel on the palate. A blend of 43% Sangiovese, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Syrah, this superb blend has a solid concentration (especially in the vintage), notable purity of fruit, and present, yet ripe and nicely integrated tannic grip that comes through on the finish.
Bright red-ruby. Lively aromas of blueberry, blackberry, licorice and flowers. Intense and suave, offering lovely sweetness and energy to its fine-grained flavors of sweet cherry, berries and flowers. Finishes classically dry and persistent."
