Long Shadows Saggi

2017 Long Shadows Saggi - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Lovely perfumed lift to the aromas of raspberry, cherry, currant, rose petal, earth and tobacco leaf. Suave, vinous wine with good grip and medium body to its flavors of red and darker berries, spices, flowers and leather. Dried herb and menthol nuances contribute Old World complexity. The tannins are fine, dusty and broad, and the wine's floral perfume repeats on the end. - Stephen Tanzer"

2017 Long Shadows Saggi - 92 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Saggi checks in as 59% Sangiovese, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 17% Syrah that spent 18 months in 60% new oak. Its deep, saturated purple color isn't reminiscent of Sangiovese, yet it boasts rocking notes of jammy blackberries, raspberries, toasted spices, and dried flowers, with just a kiss of dried earth. Medium-bodied, with subtle oak, notable balance, and a great finish. it's another impeccably made wine by this estate that has loads to love."

james suckling hq logo plain"Aromas of graphite and dark berries abound in this blend of sangiovese, cabernet sauvignon and syrah. The palate has a deeply fleshy dark-berry core with a wealth of ripe and sweetly succulent dark berries. Impressive, seamless style here. Drink over the next decade."

2016 Long Shadows Saggi - 92 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2016 Red Wine SAGGI is mostly Sangiovese but has 29% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Syrah. Medium ruby-colored, with notes of ripe cherries, spice box, and dried flowers, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, present yet ripe, polished tannins, terrific balance, and a clean, graceful finish. It’s certainly one of the best expressions of Sangiovese coming from Washington."

wine enthusiast"Sangiovese (60%) is at the heart of this blend, which is filled out by Cabernet Sauvignon (29%) and Syrah. The aromas intrigue, with notes of plum, char, vanilla and anise. The full-bodied palate mixes fruit and barrel, showing a sense of poise. SEAN P. SULLIVAN"

2014 Long Shadows Saggi - 94 PTS - WA

wa94"The 2014 Saggi is gorgeous. Black cherry, blackcurrants, licorice, graphite and spice characteristics all give way to a rich, full-bodied, yet incredibly elegant and seamless style on the palate. Given its purity and overall balance, it's going to cruise in the cellar, but it's already hard to resist as well. The blend is 52% Sangiovese, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Syrah. - Jeb Dunnuck"

2013 Long Shadows Saggi - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Alluring perfume to the aromas of cherry, plum, spices and red licorice, lifted by a note of rose petal. Intensely flavored and energetic, offering juicy, sharply delineated flavors of dark fruits, flowers and graphite. In a slightly compressed, rather vertical style but even today the wine shows no hard edges. Opened beautifully in the glass, showing a sneaky, slowly building finish. - Stephen Tanzer"
