    April 19, 2018 - Fruit was "sour" tasting and the tannins were basically gone.

  • fingers Likes this wine: 90 points

    January 28, 2017 - Light ruby color with brilliant clarity and no sediment. The nose is quite timid, just hints of dried cherry, lavender, and herbs. Light to medium structure with an elegant mouthfeel. Again, the bouquet is demure and a little closed up on the palate so I wonder if I should've waited another year or so. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful and sincere expression of Sangiovese, which is what I had hoped for, and it reinforces in my mind the possibility for the grape in Central Cali.
    I have yet to be disappointed by Ch Margene. 5+10+17+8= 90

    September 25, 2015 - excellent, well-rounded wine. perfect with artisan pizzas. nice brown color and nose impresses from the start and finishes strong with multiple layers.
