Sourced entirely from Sonoma Mountain, the smoky, toasty notes on the nose are the first clues that this is no simple flatland Syrah. The palate is packed with savory black fruits, dark earth and hints of violet and lavender. Tannins are ripe and plush, and the deep, balanced flavors linger over a long finish. Overall Sarapo Francesco Lot 1 is truly a delicious wine as well as a tremendous value! At the table, Francesco is a natural with red meats (lamb, rib eye or NY steak), hearty stews and full flavored cheeses.
