McPherson Sangiovese 2009 in the glass
Posted by on December 9, 2011

Vineyard: McPherson Cellars, Lubbock, TX

Type of wine: Sangiovese

Nose: black cherry, licorice

Palate: light, black cherry, vanilla, spicy

Rating: 5 out of 5

Price: $15

I picked up this bottle of McPherson Cellars 2009 Sangiovese at Spec’s Liquor after eying it on several previous trips but deciding on something else.  Being at a mid-range price-point I was hesitant to try it out, not having had any other wines from this vineyard.  Upon pouring the wine I immediately noticed how aromatic this wine was.  The nose of the wine is a dark, black cherry with a hint of licorice, very pleasant.  Upon tasting the wine there is a very smooth, silky, light texture to it.  It’s light, but not thin.  Up front there is the black cherry flavor, following through with a bold spiciness and vanilla taste and finished nicely with a light oak taste, perfectly aged.  This wine is perfectly balanced and smooth and therefore i’m rating it a perfect 5/5.  I have not had anywhere near as pleasant an experience with a sangiovese previously, even those from regions known for producing them.  I highly recommend picking up a bottle of this wine if you enjoy semi-dry or dry red wines such as pinot noir, cab franc or bourdeaux.  I know I will be buying this regularly to pair with pasta dishes and other hearty meals.
