Long Shadows Saggi 2007, Columbia Valley, Washington State, USA

Made by Folonari, one of the oldest wine families of Italy, this wine is an interesting blend of 43% Sangiovese, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Syrah with maturation taking place in French oak and alcohol coming in at 14.6%.

This blend opened up with exotic aromas of ripe wild berries, blackberry, espresso, incense, white pepper, Asian spices and toasty/earthy notes. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied nicely layered by soft seductive dark fruit, oak spices, lively acidity and silky tannins. This finish is very long, nicely layered with a beautiful silky textured. Saggi 2007 is a very interesting and enjoyable wine and was just as lovely as their Pedestal, Merlot. Score 92 points.

Purchased November 10, 2012 at the SAQ (11335527) at $44.50
