It's PÜR, and It's Fantastic

This wine is a special selection, exclusive to our customers. Sangiovese is a grape that can be tempermental in the New World, but is showing well in Dry Creek Valley. PÜR has made a wine that delivers the rounded body I look for.

Red cherry on the nose is indicative of the varietal. On the palate, cassis, blackberry and a hint of tobacco. Medium acid, a light body with hearty tannin. It has a soft finish that shows more of the dark fruits. A fun try for New World wine lovers.

Why We're Drinking It:

$0 SHIPPING Selection (6+/btls)

"Luscious", "Food-friendly" and a "major crowd-pleaser". Just a few things called out from our Panel at the recent tasting of this small lot production. Coming out of the region renowned to be Zin country, this wine shows the obvious: that Italy's poster child: great Sanviovese thrives here!

A single vineyard in the tiny Dry Creek Valley region has sparked quite the intrigue around here. Our sourcing team couldn’t believe their palates as they sipped, swirled, and pondered the bright red fruits, the pitch-perfect acidity, and the overwhelmingly affable PÜR Sangiovese.

Thanks to the Everett Ridge Vineyard’s idyllic location in the rolling benchlands of Dry Creek Valley, this Sangiovese enjoys a gravelly clay loam soil that is strikingly red. Much like its native home in Tuscany, the glorious sunny days give this Italian playboy grape ample time to ripen to perfection. It’s like an ode to glorious California…sung in Italian.

And while you’re planning that next dinner party (you know where to send our invites), make sure you’ve got plenty of this sumptuous stunner handy. It’s the only wine you’ll need on your table, pure and simple.


Why we love it:

  • Dry Creek Valley hosted a massive Italian immigration in the early 1900s. The weary travelers brought with them their culture and heritage…much of which is cultivated to this day on the vine. Sangiovese, the Tuscan heartthrob grape, grows happily under the family sunny sky and makes wines which strut with the classic red fruit and earth character which makes it the ultimate food wine.
  • The romantic swoon that you feel? That happens all the time when the great Tuscan heart-throb of Sangiovese strolls in. From its warm sunny home in northern Italy to the happy hills of California, this grape is notoriously good with food. And with gloriously generous acidity, a popping palate of ripe red berries, and the heady undertones of earth, we challenge you to find a better pairing for dinner with family and friends.
  • A little touch of history always makes the wine a touch richer, no? Everett A. Wise purchased his little slice of heaven in 1875. The plot just outside of Healdsburg, California hosts a stone winery that Wise had brought to the property by horse wagon. The stone walls are two feet thick and surrounded by some of the original walnut trees.
Tasting Notes:

This Sangiovese will give you dark fruits and blueberry right up front. This wine will then open up into brown spice, chocolate, and cedar. Will pair nicely with food. 

The Story to Know:

The Dry Creek Valley is undoubtedly Sonoma County's most charming AVA with its lush blonde hills covering some of the region's oldest vines; it is terroir speaking through the varietals with compelling and irresistible sensuality.

Perfect Pairings:

Sangiovese will pair wonderfully with traditional fare such as grilled steak or Portobello mushrooms. We also suggest enjoying it with a grilled cheese and mushroom sandwich. Add cambozola cheese and sautéed mushrooms to your favorite bread. Use porcini or shiitake mushrooms if you can find them.
