2015 Calistoga Grenache
Few things better embody T-Vine than our Calistoga Grenache from the Frediani Vineyard. Jim Frediani is third generation grape whisperer. He knows everything there is to know about the farmin’ business. His Calistoga vineyard sits across the valley floor and basks in the harsh daytime sun before temperatures plummet at night. These variances stress our little Grenache friends, but it makes them stronger, more robust and a bit more intense than your typical Grenache.
The 2015 vintage has completely wowed us. Brilliantly red in the glass, bright floral aromas complemented by freshly baked strawberry rhubarb pie are easy to enjoy. Elegant on the palate, this wine bursts with raspberries, bing cherries, notes of vanilla and fine-grained tannins. We say it every year, but you need a wine like this around the house, especially with paella.
