Wiens Family Cellars Sangiovese 2012

Wiens Sangiovese 2012Wiens Family Cellars, $38


Aaron:  I am extremely impressed with this Temecula bottle.  The powerful smell with strawberry syrup and boysenberry led to a fruity flavor that didn’t disappoint.  Concord grape dominates the palate with smooth, yet thorny leaves in the background.  I get the image of a berry bush with prickly leaves and tiny red berry clusters in the middle of a damp forest.  Really one of the better 2012 Weins bottles.  92 points

Teri: This is one of my favorite Wiens bottles. I feel its strength is in its bold flavors which still carry extremely smooth tannins. It has an oaky-cherry nose and a pleasant, full, round mouth feel of cherry and strawberry with sweet spice on the finish. It follows many traditional California styles being fruit forward and medium bodied. 92 points
