Norma and I dropped into the Los Altos Community Foundation’s annual spring Solstice garden party. Held at the Moore Family Home (look up Gordon Moore), the event featured food, conversation, entertainment, and … WINE!
Our vote for the winery of the evening is Chang Vineyards 2012 Los Altos Hills Sangiovese. This wine retains the basic character of the sangiovese grape without the excessive tannins, oak, and other “features” some winemakers include to make the wine more “Italian.” Excellent, full-bodied, and extremely quaffable. Most likely unavailable unless you know Simon Chang. We’d like to encourage him to move to a more commercial model. He has the right winemaking chops.
