Capstone Cellars 2009 Boushey Vineyard Sangiovese, Yakima Valley, $20

By on April 26, 2014

capstone-cellars-logoYakima Valley farmer Dick Boushey began planting his vineyards in 1980, and while he’s become famous for Rhône grapes, he’s also been willing to work with small customers such as this one in Longview, Wash., on other varieties. This example of the iconic Italian grape creates aromas of black plum, cherry, strawberry soda, fig and crushed herbs. There’s a bright red cherry greeting on the entry, backed by mild tannins and solid acidity that combine to create plush roundness and length.
