Tasting notes

Brilliant aromas of alpine strawberries, brambly blackberry and black pepper explode out of this wine. Luscious pomegranate and blueberry add density and a fullness to this otherwise light and zesty red wine. Add a chill and this becomes your go-to red wine for summer 2019.

Production

Vintage Notes

Valdiguié was once referred to as Napa Gamay in California because of its similarities in flavor and appearance to the famous Gamay Noir grape variety grown in Beaujolais, France. Valdiguié is in fact from the South West of France and is called Gros Auxerrois where it is grown for its dark color and low alcohol at full ripeness, deep flavor and loads of spicy fruit. Grown for its dark color and low alcohol at full ripeness, this deeply flavored red is loaded with spicy fruit. This wine was made without any additions of SO2 at any point in the winemaking process.
