84pointsKestrel 2004 Estate Sangiovese (Yakima Valley)

Opening aromas are a bit reductive, with some hints of tar and rubber, but underneath is firm, well-rounded fruit. This is 100% Sangio, rather heavily extracted and hence tannic, with some of the acid knocked down but the distinctive subtlety of the grape not in evidence. It comes across as a sort of younger sibling to Lemberger. Paul Gregutt
