From Boushey and Elerding vineyards, no Washington Sangiovese could ask for a better start. This is 100% varietal, and right away it shows complexity and nuance, mixing spicy berry fruit with hints of citrus and pepper. It gently fades in the midpalate, but has the graceful structure to age over the next 3–5 years.
