2016 Sangiacomo Sonoma Coast Chardonnay

92 points “The 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast offers an enticing nose of pink grapefruit, guava, nectarines and pineapple with touches of cashews, brioche and creme brulee.  Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with satiny-textured tropical fruits, with a racy line to deliver plenty of freshness through the long, toasty finish.”  – Lisa Perroti-Brown

 

2016 Sangiacomo Green Acres Vineyard Chardonnay

95 plus points “The 2016 Chardonnay Green Acres Vineyard opens with beguiling scents of pineapple, green mango, white peaches and lemon curd with hints of orange blossoms, almond croissant and honeycomb. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals an incredible intensity of tropical and citrus layers, with a seamless line of freshness and silken texture, finishing very long and savory.” – Lisa Perroti-Brown

 

2016 Sangiacomo Home Ranch Chardonnay

93 plus points “The 2016 Chardonnay Home Ranch has a wonderfully spicy nose of allspice, ginger and coriander seed over a core of honeydew melon, apricots and grapefruit with a hint of marzipan. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with spiced stone fruit flavors, followed up by plenty of freshness and finishing long and creamy.” – Lisa Perroti-Brown

 

2016 Sangiacomo Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points “Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2016 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast absolutely sings of kirsch, violets, fresh raspberries, rose hips and anise with touches of lavender, forest floor and ceps. The medium to full-bodied palate is laden with perfumed red fruits, framed by velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and layered.” – Lisa Perroti-Brown

 

2016 Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard Pinot Noir

94 plus points “Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2016 Pinot Noir Roberts Road Vineyard is a little reticent to begin, opening out to reveal incredible redcurrant, Bing cherries and lilacs scents with nuances of cinnamon stick, orange peel and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has an almost electric intensity of vibrant fruit, with a fine-grained frame and fantastic tension, finishing on a lingering mineral note.”- Lisa Perroti-Brown

 

2016 Sangiacomo ViMaria Pinot Noir

94 plus points “Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2016 Pinot Noir ViMaria offers a stunning perfume of lavender, red roses and fresh raspberries with hints of cranberries, rhubarb, black pepper, mossy bark and fertile loam. Medium to full-bodied, the palate features loads of tightly wound red berry and floral layers, framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness, finishing very long and fragrant.” – Lisa Perroti-Brown
