A bold black wine bottle with no capsule. A white label with black pieces of tile that form an image of a wine glass, in black, and text that says GUIDO. Simple and impressive.

Scores and Tasting Notes

You want to take a trip?... No, not that kind of trip! Close your eyes and take a sip. Red brick, crushed tobacco, tomato leaf, stone, sunshine and on. Black cherry, oregano, warm earth, velvety and ancient. Classic, contemporary, Washington.Winemaker Charles Smith

93 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)

“There are a tiny 150 cases of the 2016 Sangiovese Guido Jack’s Vineyard, which sports a medium ruby, translucent color as well as reticent notes of caramelized cherried, dried flowers, and brown spice. About as seamless and silky as they come on the palate, it has beautifully integrated acidity, no hard edges, and a great finish. It should show more complexity with another year or so in bottle and I suspect it’s best drunk over the following 4-5 years.”

94 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (v2015)

“The 2015 Sangiovese Guido is very pretty, offering up notes of Griotte cherry, redcurrants, dried herbs, orange rind and subtle licorice. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, supple and satiny, with an ample and tangy core of fruit, melting tannins and a mouthwatering finish. Elegantly balanced, I didn’t taste a better Sangiovese from Washington State during my two weeks of tasting.”

Vineyard – Jack’s (100%)

Walla Walla Valley AVA, Washington State Red Wine
(100% Sangiovese, 14.5% Alcohol)
Stony, ancient riverbed, located on the floor of the Walla Walla Valley. Very cobbly, Freewater, loam-cobbles over gravel over sand, dried riverbed. In the rocky soils of this part of the valley, low vigor keeps flavors concentrated. Planted in 1999.
The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Vintage

The 2016 vintage started early and warm in Washington State. When summer arrived, the season saw cooler evenings that helped retain acidity, extended thegrowing and ripening period into September and October. This allowed the fruit to gain more complexity and deeper charm without sacrificing the acid or producing higher alcohol content. The vintage has created deeply rich and focused wines that we will be able to enjoy for along time to come.
