Cavatappi Winery 2015 Sangiovese, Columbia Valley, $12

By on December 6, 2017

Best Buy! Italy-inspired Peter Dow continues to spearhead the Cavatappi Winery program he founded in the late 1980s, and these are some of the most affordable, food-friendly wines available. His partnership with Precept means pulling from Oasis, Canyon Vineyard Ranch and den Hoed vineyards in the Yakima Valley, and the juice is bright and nicely herbal with less alcohol. The range of aromas and flavors include sweet cherry, President plum and strawberry-rhubarb compote with pinches of oregano, sage and freshly cracked pepper.

Rating: Excellent

Production: 3,435 cases
