Tasting Notes
Over the past few years, the Sangiovese at Cimarron Vineyard has stood out as not only one of our favorite varietals from this amazing vineyard, but also as a varietal that we would like see planted more widely around Arizona. Sangio is a little challenging here because our monsoon rains can be tough on its big, juicy, thin-skinned berries. But the grapes hold acidity amazingly well and the fruit just seems to have a strong sense of place here in AZ. We regularly use Todd & Kelly Bostock’s Sangiovese in our Rosé and LeBlend, and we’re are always happy when we have enough fruit to vineyard designate a couple of our favorite barrels. This is classic Sangiovese with bright fruit, fresh acidity and that amazing Cimarron Vineyard tannic structure. This wine is also one of Joe’s perennial favorites! Only three barrels produced.
