"The 2007 Valley of the Moon Sangiovese displays fresh, forward raspberry and red cherry aromas, accented by a hint of sage. Red cherry also dominates the generous flavors, with a deft note of cinnamon complexity. The lithe palate keeps modest, well-integrated tannins in the background and leads to a long, vibrant, balanced finish Winemaker Notes While Sangiovese is an up-and-coming varietal for California, it is a long-revered traditional Mediterranean varietal which has proven to be well suited to Sonoma County. The fruit for this Sangiovese comes from vineyards in the Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and our Estate Vineyard in the Sonoma Valley. These appellations are known for their warm summer days and cool evening breezes. Merlot was chosen for the blend to soften the tannins, Barbera to add spice, and Syrah for depth and structure. Food Pairing: This release of Sangiovese is delicious with hearty pastas, fowl and dishes that include parmesan cheese, tomatoes and basil. Also pairs well with rosemary chicken and roasted meats Varietal Composition: 85% Sangiovese 10% Merlot 3% Barbera 2% Syrah Appellation: Sonoma County Acid: 6.9 g/L PH: 3.44 Aging: 16 months in French oak Alcohol %: 13.5 "
