The first release of the Becker Wine Club Sangiovese: Le Quattro Stagione Primavera.  The Sangiovese grapes were planted by our very own Wine Club Vine Sponsors in 2015. After several years of hand pruning and watchful, caring eyes, the grapes are ready for harvest. We started with a dedicated hand-harvest crew, lessons on Brix and grape ripeness, and even a few willing feet for crushing. Fermentation started in a stainless steel tank, but finished in a mixture of new and neutral American oak barrels. Left alone for nearly two years, the wine has matured to a savory expression reminiscent of Italian Brunello. Pairing well with the Becker Estate Petite Sirah, Barbera from Drew Tallent and a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Canada Family Vineyards, we hope you’ll agree this delectable wine is a wine to be enjoyed with food.

It is light-to-medium bodied, with bright cherries and pomegranates to greet you. It opens to a rustic wine, earthy yet bright, soft yet expressive. The tannic structure is immediate, and merely allows the fruit to be the subtle highlight. You’ll want to decant this wine, but enjoy the aromas as it opens to fruition.

Aromatics: Rainier cherries, pomegranate, earthy olive notes, tea, rose petals

On the Palate: Tart cherries, black tea, dried fruits and herbs, lingering
