90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2013

Moderate saturated bright medium red.  Aromas of sour red cherry, red berries, licorice and graphite, with some apparent oakiness.  Then sweet and silky in the mouth, with nicely concentrated, varietally typical red fruit and floral flavors.  Offers good breadth and texture without any excess weight thanks to nicely integrated acidity.  Finishes with dusty tannins, lingering red berry flavors and a light touch.  A superb value.  (ST)

Stolpman California sangiovese
by parker10458818
This was my first experience with u.s. sangiovese and I was pleasantly surprised. It's my holiday gift wine. Had it w chicken and pasta in white wine sauce. Will probably order another case.
Happily Surprised
by Smith13560202
Bought this bottle as a top off, then read the reviews and was worried. Happy to report we used an aerator and thoroughly enjoyed this bottle with an Italian dinner.I would definitely but it again.

a nice wine for the price. spicy very drinkable
surprised after waiting
by Septimus13820945
First bottle was OK, but we waited this time and let it breath. What a surprise! The aromas, fruit, and finish really came out nicely with time. Made buying an aerator worth it!

A very good wine for the price, bold, fruity, but quite a bit of sediment to get through
Our "go to" wine for any gathering.
by Johnson10580615
THE BEST medium-bodied red wine you will find. Appeals to everyone -- guys, ladies, sophisticates, even our beloved "just gimme the red or the white" kinda friends, this one is a winner. Serve it with steak, roast turkey or anything in a pasta sauce. Amazing value, too. Take a bottle to a bud's house for dinner and watch the eyeballs roll. Guaranteed to get you a second date.
Good value
by Crow13882546
Bright red color, some fruitiness in aroma and taste, smooth, lots of body, some tannins. Not complex. Not enough berries, or character to be an outstanding Sangiovese; but a good wine for the money.

Was taken back by the screw cap,but the wine was okay,
by Brooks13776035
a so-so red wine requiring chilling to cut the sweet. this was not mentioned in the offer for sale.
Not the Best
by Wassell11461593
I have had plenty of great wine with good to great value. THis one was one of my least favorites. I think just too tannic for me.
Restrained upon opening, gets better over time
by concina10700349
Good wine, gets better with more air. Keeps improving over 2 days in the bottle

About California

It is remarkable that an industry essentially less than a half-century old could capture the attention of the American wine-buying public to the degree that California has. Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...

The trademark of wines from Tuscany, and especially those from the region of Chianti, was once the fiasco. This straw-colored flask may carry associations of lengthy rustic meals out on the portico of a villa in the Tuscan countryside, but this romantic reverie must be interrupted with a burst of reality...
