2018 Casasmith Cinghiale Sangiovese

Wahluke Slope
Columbia Valley

14.5% alcohol

Cork closure




This Sangiovese had lovely aromas of violets, pomegranates, and blueberries.


Based on the color, I expected this wine to be heavier and more robust than it was. Instead, I found a nice, light mouthfeel with grippy tannins and bright acidity. Filled with blueberries, pomegranates, chocolate-covered blueberries, it had a subtle bitterness– akin to raspberry seeds– that continued into a long finish.

Food pairing suggestions:

Bolognese pasta, roasted cauliflower steaks, wild boar (as suggested by the illustration on the label).

SRP $25
