2006 Young’s Vineyard Shenandoah Valley SangiovesePosted: July 16, 2008 | Author: marga | Filed under: Wine | Leave a comment »
I bought this wine during a recent trip to the Gold Country in California. I loved most of the wines at that winery, but this one was one of my favorite ones. At $26 it was pretty expensive for me – but I did like it a lot.
We drank it a few nights ago along with a simple dinner of french bread, soft cheese, sorpressata, coppa and olive oil. It was, once again, very good, with a rich flavor, full body, soft tannins, and memories of dark berries. It was also succulent and buttery. Mike liked it too, but I don’t think as much as I did.
In all, one of my favorite wines.
