Fruit farmed in house at the old Mcgourty produce one of the unsung heroes of Paso,Sangiovese. Maybe the most under appreciated varietal in Paso in shines in the warm heat with its high acid content, much like Zinfandel. Once acids dropped enough it was picked in late September. Fermented in multiple lots, some Whole cluster and some whole berry, the wine went an unprecedented 40 days on its skin resulting in equal amounts of tannin to that of perceived acid. In achieving this feat, we have here a wine that is both red fruit forward with touches of earth and spice but one that will also age gracefully for the next 5-10 years.
