The Klenk Vineyard is located just north of Fredericksburg in the transitional area between the Pedernales
River Valley and the Middle Hickory. Dave and Robyn Klenk planted these Sangiovese grapes with the help
of their daughter Haley (a former employee much beloved by the William Chris Family). The eighteen inches
of clay loam topsoil mixed with limestone gravel is a major element in the structure of this wine.
A seductive ruby tint shows an articulate nose with striking aromas of spicy cinnamon, ginger, orange zest,
and clove, drawing into a palate of bright red berries and muddled citrus flesh. A playfulness between the
bright fruits and the drying tannic structure shows an intrigue and thoughtfulness making one imagine the
many expressions in the long life ahead, very age-worthy.
Enjoy through 2023-2028.
