Sinatra Family Estates 2008 La Voce Toscana
Several years ago, attorney Bob Finkelstein mentioned to his friend Steve Wynn that his clients, the family of Frank Sinatra, were exploring possible business ventures, among them a restaurant and a wine label. The issue of that interchange was twofold: an Italian eatery at Wynn’s Encore resort, and Napa Valley–based winery Sinatra Family Estates. The winery’s latest addition, Sinatra Family Estates 2008 La Voce Toscana, pays homage to his Italian roots, created with a supple blend of Sangiovese and Colorino from vineyards near Fiesole, Italy. The wine contrasts with its ripe California cousins, exuding subtler aromas, such as dried cherry and attar of rose. The palate is restrained and elegant, offering up red-fruit flavors followed by layered hints of leather, sweet tobacco, and clove.
