Flying Sheep Hawke’s Bay Sangiovese 2013 $35 (4 stars)

Crafted by the clever kids over at Osawa Wines in Hawke’s Bay’s Maraekakaho district, this is a lithe, lovely, local example of an Italian classic, which boasts buckets of red cherry, redcurrant and raspberry, all wrapped up in an earthy, suede-like texture on the finish.  Juicy, yet dry and smoky, it’s maturing nicely and just sings with sticky, slow-cooked beef cheeks.
