91 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The 2012 Guido Sangiovese sports a translucent ruby color to go with outstanding notes of black cherries, dried herbs, rose petal and cured meats. It’s nicely balanced, has classic typicity and will have a decade of longevity.”

Vineyard Notes
Jack’s Vineyard: Stony, ancient riverbed, located on the floor of the Walla Walla Valley. This vineyard is 80% Sangiovese and 20% Syrah. Very cobbly, Freewater loam- cobbles over gravel over sand, dried riverbed. In the rocky soils of this part of the valley, low vigor keeps flavors concentrated. Planted in 1999.

Winemaker Notes
Washington’s vintners were overjoyed at what they tasted after a growing season that tracked very much like 2008, one of the best vintages in memory. Depths of color and flavor in an abundant crop that retained its desired acidity seems to have put a smile on most winemakers’ faces. Following several cooler vintages, 2012 allowed the vines to ripen normally. The waves of fruit came in smoothly. Fruit could hang longer without worrying about getting too ripe. The steady ripening also allowed for beautiful structure and elegance.
