Koenig Winery 2010 Williamson Vineyards Sangiovese, Snake River Valley, $20

By on June 1, 2013

Idaho wineThe high-elevation vineyards of Idaho’s Snake River Valley do a great job of enhancing Sangiovese’s already stellar acidity, and this is a superb example from one of the state’s top vintners. This opens with aromas of white chocolate, dusty cherry, mint and tarragon, followed by flavors of raspberry and cherry on the entry, followed by flavors of dried cranberry and raspberry. Great acidity lifts all the fruit to make this a great wine to serve with lasagna.
