Wine tasting note: 1996 Amador Shenandoa Valley Foothill Sangiovese

1996 Amador Shenandoa Valley Foothill Sangiovese

28th Oct 1999 GBP11 California Table Red

Even garnet, browning.
Rich (baked) berry fruit and some perfume on the nose.
Full-bodied with sweet, pure blackcurrant and black cherry fruit. High acidity, soft tannins. OK finish with peppery white oak.
Mmmmm! A beast at 14.5% abv but very enjoyable.
