Don’t let that pale color fool you, this Garnacha explodes with aromatic intensity. Temecula’s long, hot, sunny growing season allows these grapes to fully ripen and develop aromas of jammy raspberry, candied cherry, and strawberry coulis.
It’s worth noting the quality of 2016 Sangiovese. It lacks some of the spiciness and oakiness you’ll commonly find in wines from that varietal, but I consider that a positive. The fruit doesn’t need to hide behind these secondary flavors, something indicative of the grapes being picked by hand as opposed to machine-harvested. The result is a pleasant, easy drinking experience which appeals to most palates.
