Review date: May 10, 2017

Wine Review: This slightly opaque dark red colored Sangiovese based kitchen sink blend from Sonoma is a very good quaffer. It opens with a mild boysenberry bouquet with a hint of cherry and cranberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty red plum and cherry blend with notes of mild oak and a touch of cinnamon. The finish is dry and its mild well-managed tannins and fruit flavors drift away nicely. This crowd pleaser will be a hit at all your summer parties. Serve it with burgers and grilled steak tips! Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Siena has delicious aromas of pomegranate, cherry, plum, licorice and mocha. Flavors of strawberry jam on the entry are enhanced by cherry cola and smoky plums that add layers of richness to this elegant wine. Siena has supple tannins that leave a balanced mouthfeel with lively elegance, depth and a lingering finish. Siena pairs perfectly with savory Italian food, pasta with flavorful tomato sauces or pizza. Siena is also delicious with chicken cacciatore.
