Hidden Gem, a real stunner

Sanglier is French for “Wild Boar” and wild boars still roam the area of the winery!  Owner Glenn Alexander grew up in Texas, but visited California wine country often. In 2001 he and his wife Melissa purchased a vineyard and home in the Russian River Valley that set in motion the idea of the Sanglier winery.  In 2003 Glenn started Bacchus Vineyard Management and as of today still has big names clients like Paul Hobbs, Kosta Browne and Pahlmeyer. He also farms for Kick Ranch, Griffin’s Lair and other iconic vineyards in the valley.  In 2006 the Alexander family created Sanglier Cellars and since 2007 have worked closely with Dick Keenan in making fine wines from Kick Ranch and other premium Sonoma County vineyards they farm.

The dark ruby core of this Pinot Noir exhibits striking clarity and vibrancy. The nose develops nice intensity in the glass with aromas of concentrated red fruits like raspberry, cherry and strawberry. The palate possesses balanced acidity, tannin and body with engaging flavor intensity and a lingering finish. The flavors echo the aromas of candied red fruits which are framed by warm spices and a touch of pipe tobacco. The acid is refreshing and zesty, the fruit, firm and juicy and the tannins, ripe and fine-grained. A supple viscosity complements the seductive fruit in this well-structured and harmonious wine. 400 cases produced.
