Much of the fruit for the big reds crafted by Willamette Valley winemaker Joe Williams comes from storied Seven Hills Vineyard, and he was one of two producers of a Sangiovese to receive a Platinum in 2021. Back at his young wine bar in the Portland suburb of Hillsboro is this yummy expression of Sangio that’s soft and refined with a steady pulse of fruit along the lines of black raspberry, cherry and strawberry. Awards: Savor NW (best of class/gold), Newport Seafood and Wine Festival (gold).
