On the nose, the wine features notes of spice box, dark chocolate shavings, and cherry cordial that carry through to the palate, which is plush and concentrated with black fruits, dusty tannins and along, lingering finish. We love this blend for its playful duet between the polished structure of Cabernet Sauvignon and effusive aromatics of Sangiovese.
Dense and full-bodied, Omaggio begs to be paired with the richness of grilled beef and the acidity of a slightly piquant chimichurri sauce.
Our Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon are harvested in Alexander Valley. Long, warm days aided by the absence of marine influence marks this site in Alexander Valley. The soils are composed of clay and clay loam with underlying layers of basalt, sandstone and volcanic rock. Vines are challenged by the low nutrient level of the clay and the shallow topsoil, both of which force the vines to produce more concentrated fruit.
