WTN: Two Forlorn-Hope Reds.....(short/boring)

by TomHill » Wed Oct 28, 2020 2:30 pm

Tried these two from my recent F-H shipment over the last few days:
1. Forlorn-Hope Sogni della Specia Sangiovese SolanoCnty (12.04%; 47 cs) Fairfield 2013: Med.color; strong cherry/Sangio/earthy bit smokey/toasty/oak rather fragrant very Calif-like slight earthy/dusty/SolanoCnty bit floral/violets/cherry blossom lovely nose; fairly tart/tangy rather sinewey/tannic strong bright/cherry/Sangio some earthy/dusty bit rough/rustic very interesting flavor w/ modest brisk tannins; very long tart/tangy/earthy/dusty/rustic some bright/cherry/Sangio bit smokey/oak finish w/ light tannins; a bit on the rustic side but an interesting expression of Calif Sangio; more like a Montepulciano than Chianti but much more Calif than Italian. $42.00
