2014 2014 Saggi
- Winemaker Gilles Nicault
- Appellation Columbia Valley
- Varietal Sangiovese/Cabernet Blend
The 2014 Saggi is gorgeous. Black cherry, black currants, licorice, graphite and spice characteristics all give way to a rich, full-bodied, yet incredibly elegant and seamless stye on the palate. Given its purity and overall balance, it's going to cruise in the cellar, but it's already hard to resist as well.
Aromas of bittersweet chocolate, herb, pencil lead, smoke, cranberry and dark fruit lead to palate-coating black-fruit flavors that display depth and density. It shows a lovely sense of balance and detail.
