18 Coronado Sangiovese
99% Sangiovese, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
The Cook family of Willcox farms this small vineyard on the extreme east side of Willcox and we have been very blessed to work with their amazing fruit. I will never forget the first time I stepped in this vineyard and looked down at the ground: the flat stones looked exactly like the slate floor in my living room! It has been so exciting working with grapes grown on this unique soil type, one of which I have never seen grapes grown on before. True to Arizona, Coronado Sangiovese offers structured acidity, tart Bing cherry, cranberry, violets, bergamot and a lovely subtle vanilla bean finish.
