2010 Calistoga Grenache, Frediani Vineyard
Grenache is one of the most misunderstood of all the wines we craft. Some think of her as simple and uncomplicated…but that is akin to saying a ripe, luscious strawberry is simple. Warm from the sun, aromatic, colorful, and delicate — yet so intense you can close your eyes and taste the lingering flavors burst in your mouth. Now, if that is simple, we will take a big slice of simple any day. And Jim Frediani’s hot Calistoga Vineyard assures us we won’t be disappointed.
